Yes, but if we had a way that could be hooked right into the select/poll
mechanism of the GUI, it would be more efficient. That means using a
filedescriptor for synchronize stuff, but that would be OK imho, its only
one global pipe.
But I don't know enough about the GTK main loop to do that. But if we
implement CheckSynchronize via a pipe mechanism then we could always later
add that.
