Hence - if you say the signaling stuff is not / should not be a language 
feature but just a matter of a library (I don't disagree here) fpc is 
unrelated to this. I feel that fpc would have no problems with an 
implementation of an environment that allows for more than one thread 
that features event-driven programming (While Lazarus only allows for a 
single such "Main"-Thread. mse: I don't know, but I suspect that Martin 
did think about it.)

In fact my colleague did mention QT, I did point him to dbus after you 
mentioned it. dbus seems less bloated (if you don't need the QT GUI stuff).
