[Twisted-Python] Event queue in the Python std lib

I know some of you guys have already thinking about this but ...
A couple of weeks ago we had a bit of a chat (flame? ;-)) in #twisted
about the idea of moving parts of Twisted, specifically the event loop,
into the std lib. So, at Europython I had a quick chat with GvR about it
GvR would really, really like to get a simple, flexible event loop into
the std lib and thinks that Twisted is likely the best starting point
since Twisted probably integrates with more event driven toolkits than
Obviously, having the event loop part in the std lib has a number of
benefits but it should also put pressure on all event driven toolkits to
conform to the common API. Everything would then work together and the
world would be a happier, shinier place ;-).
GvR suggested that someone should start a PEP to talk around, which
seems like a sensible thing to do, although I don't know if anyone with
enough knowledge of the reactor and working with other event loops has
time right now.
