Tkinter supports some kind of event that runs n millisecond (n is a
parameter) after you call the method. You can use that to create a
timing loop. That's more or less what you have to do anyway, if you
want to run your tkinter gui in a separate thread from the rest of
your application. Tkinter isn't thread-safe, so you have to do
something like periodically check a queue from the tkinter thread.
