You are absolutely right. Doing too much ini the main thread might slow 
down server-type applications a lot due to the necessary serialization 
of the events. But doing such application is "advanced programming" and 
who wants to dive into this will need to bother with the well known 
dangerous dirty details of thread programming. There just should be a 
package that allows for using serial communication also to "basic" (non 
multi-threaded) programming. If the same package also allows for 
"advanced" usage by additionally supplying "thread-events": the better !
