"idle" is a poor choice of name - it presumably comes from the fact that
the priority adopted by g_idle_add() is G_PRIORITY_DEFAULT_IDLE - but
you can set the priority in the queue with g_idle_add_full() to any of
the five defined priorities for the main loop, or indeed for any other
priority number you like. g_event_add() would have been a much better

However, all callbacks executed by the main program loop have latency,
because they cannot be executed until control in the main thread returns
to the loop.  Thus, for example, timeout callbacks are only an
