calling glutMainLoopEvent() to process pending events and then either sleeping or calling
your idle function (see glutIdleFunc()).
This function can return, but GLUT's version of this function never returned. And you
must do special things to OpenGLUT to cause OpenGLUT's version to return.
The cross-reference section for this function's documentation should ideally contain every
callback, but the list would be tediously long and prone to omissions.
For OpenGLUT developers' internal documentation: Runs until the ExecState changes to
Talking to other message systems (e.g., network layers) can be a bit bothersome under the
GLUT event model.
