Thanks to all for the replies.

It took me a bit to figure out what was going on in this procedure,
and I had to adapt it a bit, since I'm trying to avoid gtk
dependencies in my scheme, but it works great.  I can even run my app
in emacs and use scheme mode commands to send it code.

It might be cool to move event-repl.scm from guile-gtk to the main
guile distribution since it doesn't seem to depend on gtk, and it
might be useful for people using other drawing enviornments.

Thanks again,
