[gambit-list] Gambit and event-based systems

Specially in the mobile world, there are many platforms that force the
developer to think and code its applications around events. Sometimes this
is done with virtual functions or interface implementation, overriding
methods, or plain C-style callbacks.

The problem is, in any of these cases, generally the main loop is
controlled by the application. Since Gambit runs within the
___setup(params) function, and then quits (expecting ___cleanup() to be
called), there is no way to easily adapt to this architecture except for
running in a separate thread and communicating through messages or shared

Is there a better way to do this?
