What about a pure win32 API app written in C.  Do you essentially reinvent
your own event system using callbacks with program flow control? Or the
win32 api has an event system in its api itself?  Been a while since I did
some win32 api programming..
I'm just wondering if pretty much every system out there has some kind of
rolled your own event system of some kind.  The other common item that
pops up everywhere is some kind of messaging system to notify objects,
which I guess is what Smalltalk takes credit for.
