Window groups were added to GTK some time after I wrote my base
classes. Though I'm not sure they are really equivalent. Ah well!

No, not portably. It'll work on Linux, if you're very careful, but
won't work on Windows, ironically.

I like having a single GUI thread and just using threads for longer
tasks. The Windows model seems to introduce a lot of unnecessary

Though of course I just posted a mind-boggling continuations-in-C
