Brilliant! I had also developed the same as keeping track of the
thread and invoking when needed, but adding it as an Extension Method
to the Gtk.Widget is a great idea.

One question: in the initial call of RevokeRequired, won't the
Application.Invoke get sent off to the GUI thread, and thus the return
value will be wrong because the setting of _uiThread won't have
completed yet? or am I mistaken?

I guess you could have a special InitializeRevoke. BTW, We have found
that the GUI thread is always the same (0 or 1, I forget). I wonder if
that will always be the case?

Thanks for sharing!
