Another idea is to add the concept of "only run dispose/finalize in

It would be nice if this flag name would be a bit more generic - G_TYPE_FLAG_MATCH_CONTEXT only; bindings then could arrange marshaling *any* call of such object into the appropriate context. This could help to overcome possible bindings' problems with planned deprecations of GTK+ threads API.
