There is ert-async.el <https://github.com/rejeep/ert-async.el>. I like
this idea, although the timer loop applies only
accept-process-output. read-event shall be added, at least.

Maybe we should contact the author, whether he agrees to merge this code
into ert.el?

Reading file notifications via gio does not use file descriptors, which
are handled via xg_select. The same will happen, if we switch to gdbus
or kdbus later on. That's why we might need another kind of mainloop 

I'm not too familiar with kbd_buffer_store_event and the mechanisms
behind. If we still could use them - OK.

Best regards, Michael.
