coool. I'm very interested in the reactor interface you proposed.
Maybe I can help with win32.
But tell me, I thought twisted is pure python, so how are we
going to integrate this for win32? The win32all extension does
not provide the means to do it.
I could write a .pyd module with c++ and boost. Would this help?
Some things we would have to think of: For most of the stuff there
is some difference between 95/98/ME, NT4/2000 and XP/2003. Some
things will even not be available for 95/98/ME, like some Battery
Most information should be available through Windows Messages
like WM_USERCHANGED, WM_DEVICECHANGE etc., so polling is not
required. Unfortunately 95/98/ME does not broadcast WM_DEVICECHANGE
for all required device events.
Well, just some thoughts, I didn't have time to try anything yet.
