Just a question.  Is it necessary to directly modify gtk/gdk/glib to
add threading support to them?  I have no experience with using
threads, so I don't know for sure, but can't this be done with macros
or small functions that wrap around the functions in the libraries?
The wrappers would handle thread locking and call the library function
to do the actual work.
