  I think we want to leave the main loop in libgui. What about firing up
a background thread to do some of the upfront processing ? Then as long
as the frame was loaded it could be displayed. With a thread doing this
you wouldn't have to follow the FPS rate. We can also add an additional
timer to fire off something on a faster rate, also decoupling this from
the frame display rate.
