Hi David,

I was just perusing the examples directory in the standard pygame 
installation and noticed that "eventlist.py" and "fastevents.py" might 
be very close to what you want.

There is another one called "chimp.py" which is a tiny, silly game 
demonstrating a number of pygame's capabilities, including getting mouse 
and keyboard events. The good thing about it is that there is a detailed 
analysis of it at:

The part that handles events is near the end of the article. The 
important part of the code is only 6 lines long.
