I was just trying to help fpc to be a winner (here and elsewhere). ;-)

In fact it seems that he was wrong assuming this to be a language 
feature. The experts here state that it's just library stuff that - of 
course - can be used / implemented via fpc.

Of course the colleague was not able to clearly distinguish between fpc 
and Lazarus. But we obviously are in the wrong forum here, as the 
"culprit" seems to be the inability of Lazarus LCL to do event driven 
programming in threads. Obviously a library with this feature can be 
created (the "closed" design of TThread - that includes a single 
main-thread event queue - in the RTL might force creating an alternative 
Thread container object though.)
