With the event-approach you could also emulate your while() loop:

def my_while_loop():
        if (check_some_condition())
                # Wait 30 Seconds
                timed_hook.register(my_while_loop, 30sec)
                timed_hook.register(my_while_loop, 10sec)

# Start my_while_loop after 10 seconds
timed_hook.register(my_while_loop, 10sec)

The only problem I see with this is that it will get ugly when you
have large sequences of hook-stuff (a person walking around and
talking to different other person), but a simple pre-compiler or
macros should help here.

I actually can't really imagine a situation where that shouldn't work,
could you give a more complex example?
