As I said - it certainly is doable. But I fear not in tkinter "as is" 
(you can use tk still for your _own_ gui), and not without deeper 
knowledge of the windows event system. Then mark hammond's win32 
extensions are a starting point. And you should search for example code 
on MSDN or something like that (obviously _not_ in python), to get a 
starting point.
