Uh. I guess Motif is just a bit out of fashion these days, that's all,
that's why noone responded. ;-)

But yes, the PA client can integrate into other event loops. That
doesn't mean however that this is a really go idea in all cases. In
fact in most cases it is not a good idea, especially not if you drive
an X11 GUI whith all kinds of time intensive and blocking syscalls
from the same event loop.

The PA client is very flexible when it comes to event loops. That is
quite nice in some ways, but actually it also makes the PA client APIs
a bitt too complex.
