I didn't knew about this one. So many things, so little time.

In the current Linux Magazine (English edition) there's an article by resident
Perl coder Schilli who shows how to embed POE inside Gaim to fetch web pages
and do some processing. Basically, Gaim calls periodically
Poe->execute_time_slice (I may not have the function name right).

So I thought maybe the same approach could be used for low-priority stuff as
Prima can peridoically execute a POE time slice.

Just an idea. If I have the time, I'll try something out.
