Good. I still wonder how to add support for editing commands.
Here in Argentina, we are broadcasting applications that heavily
depend editing commands.

I thought maybe I could make a DFB driver to handle that, so the call
to WaitForEventsWithTimeout unblocks on *any* (or almost any) event.

So I am not so crazy :)
I am working on a pure lua ginga implementation (just for fun). I
think it is very doable, so to speak, since Lua is *very* powerful and
is many times overlooked.

IMHO, telemidia's Ginga implementation looks too bloated to me.
