Check out circuits [1]. It has a Component
called Stdin [2] which allows you to have
non-blocking Standard Input that I use
for getting input from the user. (works
only on Linux though). You may be able
to adapt this to suite your needs.

My telnet [3] example shows how this
Stdin component is used.
