This is a significant tangent from this conversation. Does anyone think
it would be possible/useful to create an event-loop library completely
independent of the GUI library, but that the GUI library would use. I
think there are probably vast uses other than GUI apps that could take
advantage of such a component. Obviously the signal library could be
put to good use in such an event library (once the performance
optimizations are implemented).

This is pretty much just a random thought :)
