An interesting post on thread safety in java-gnome, especially in the
light of recent discussions about the global GTK lock in GTK#:

I see no obvious reason why it wouldn't be possible to do this in
GTK#, though it may be worth waiting for ReaderWriterLockSlim:
Loss of performance may be an issue too, I guess, but it might be
worth it for a thread-safe toolkit.

Ideas and comments?
