The Tkinter.createfilehandler() method isn't supported on Windows,
only Unix and Mac.  So, when confronted with moving a Python program
that uses createfilehandler() to Windows, what do people do?  Use
threads?  Use Tcl's channel C API (but that seems inaccessible from
Python)?  Something completely different?
