One common solution is to do all the work in a "worker thread" and keep the
GUI responsive to command.

Note that Python don't have native support to pause/resume threads. You'll
need to get your thread to check for new state every now and then. (Usually
this means keep transactions small) or use processes instead of threads
(see http://home.pacbell.net/ouster/threads.pdf).

You might want to use async socket reading as well.
