FWIW, I've had to do this exactly once in a Windows rev external.
Since dlls are essentially Windows applications with a special
interface identifying them as libraries, you can put an entire event
loop in a dll, the same as you would in an application. Then you just
handle OS events the same way you normally would, package them up, and
hand them back to rev.

Of course, if you want this to be cross-platform you'll have to code
this up for each OS of interest. YMMV.
