Exactly.

The class methods are intended to be used as quick fire-and-forget methods.

There are some parametrizations possible by choosing the right overload, 
but you obviously do not get the full options you would have when you 
actually use a class.

I think that if you need more flexibility than these methods provide, you
should simply write a TThread class.
