My understanding of this is close but not quite the same.
The "wait 0 with messages" statement is the fastest implementation
("wait 0") of an opportunity for the system event loop to process any
pending instructions. The "with messages" statement in effect yields
control to the event loop to check if any "send in time" messages have
timed out and are pending or to handle other tasks that may have
accumulated (mouse or keyboard events, etc).
