If others (Mike I guess) agree just a sentence like:
"Note: In Gtk# Gtk.ThreadNotify is recommended over Gtk.Threads
usage." in the Gdk.Threads class level document might be sufficient. 
Better would be a small paragraph including why you and others might
find it not optimal.
Also, for Gtk.ThreadNotify if it uses GLib.Idle why would someone not
want to just use that directly.

I'm not trying to create work for others, its just not something I use
so I am not a good candidate to write it.
