# vasm + gpm note.
The current urwid code does not work.  When switching to init <4 from a GUI
the vasm urwid interface does not get key events.
Solutions:
    1. remove the gpm package
        gpm == console mouse handler

# To perform external tasks with external programs.

loop = urwid.MainLoop object
loop.screen.stop()
# do your external stuff here
loop.screen.start()
