i don't know who these GNOME people are (very short?), but going with
"multi-threading is evil" is an unbelievable statement: i'm gobsmacked.

I think they mean "multithreaded GUIs are evil", which is surely
correct. Keep the GUI as a single-threaded async thing, it's much,
much simpler and safer.

Multithreaded media libraries and so on are very good idea (as you say).
