I have looked into this, I can't see an easy solution.
wxSockets (which generate events when data comes in off the network) aren't 
in wxPython, as a matter of policy.
EVT_IDLE is too slow as Karsten has said.
Apparently Python has it's own mechanism for asynchronously listening for 
network traffic,
(which is why Robert Dunn refuses to write bindings for wxPython) but I don't 
how this is meant to interact with the wxWindows event loop.

In any case, none of these work with the existing postgres libraries, which, 
firmly synchronous, so we are back to rolling our own. 

Any ideas?
