There is not, as GTK requires locking to access globals structures.  If
you're considering porting to Win32, to my knowledge, even the
enter/leave thing will not work right.  So really you should always have
the GUI in one thread and all calls to GTK in that thread.

This is a good idea.  Gives you freedom down the road too.
