I have a great interest is this kind of use, but in a threaded
environment. I've developed my own event-driven infrastructure
but it's not designed to be super general-purpose. However, I
am interest in actively participating in discussions around your
proposal wrt this kind of use.
Specifically, my needs for event-driven programming arise from
designing machine simulators, which have slightly different
requirements than a GUI system (tracking simulator time, for
example). A policy-based design works well and is what I've
designed for my own use.
