Another path would be to continue to use win32er and use wxPython in a
second thread without getting wxreactor involved at all.

A third path would be to contribute some development time to Twisted to
provide a better, supported way to deal with this use case. :)

Note that there is a _threadedselect build /slave/ set up, but no one has
yet even bothered to write the trivial reactor plugin which will make it
possible for it to run any tests.  For all the interest in wxPython, it
continues to surprise me how little effort anyone has yet been willing to
spend on making it /work/.  Itamar is essentially the only person who has
done any work on it, and as far as I know, he doesn't even use it.
