You're still not explaining why you need to use another main loop, so you
may be putting yourself into a lot of pain for nothing.

I'm not arguing that there aren't situations where the glib main loop
doesn't serve all needs. I'm arguing that in this specific situation, you
haven't yet proven that you can't use the glib main loop :-)
