Making the appropriate ("signalable") Objects instances of TThread 
siblings would do the same trick.

But (as discussed before) with that such TThread-sibling instances would 
have to automatically have their own Event queue instance, and would 
need to be programmed in an event-driven way (like the main thread in 
Lazarus). (In fact this is what I feel in many cases would be the more 
appropriate way to do do worker threads  anyway: I already suggested a 
"TThreadApplication" Type in Lazarus already ages ago)
