Multiple Windows in Pygame, using true concurrency in python via Kamaelia

First of all, the proof that this works in Kamaelia, right now:

OK, this is using the new code for running multiple Kamaelia type systems in multiple processes relatively simply. Specifically, the "interesting" code looks like this:

class SecondProcessBasedComponent(SimplestProcessComponent):
    def main(self):
        from Kamaelia.UI.Pygame.Display import PygameDisplay
        from Kamaelia.UI.Pygame.MagnaDoodle import MagnaDoodle

        yield 1

exchange = SecondProcessBasedComponent().activate()
R = []
for _ in xrange(7):

The upshot? If the above code ran on a machine with 8 CPUs, it would use all 8 CPUs. With NO change to the pre-existing Kamaelia components. I find that pretty neat :-D
