Sounds good !
Of course the "ObjectPascalish" way to do things is handle everything in 
If lnet really internally provides means to fire main-thread-events 
(such as "OnReceive"), that work fine concurrently with GUI events (I 
did not know that lnet can do this), of course just using what lnet 
provides is the way to go,

Now the next question is whether lnet integrates with the CE-flavor of 
the LCL as well as it seemingly does with the Windows and KDE-flavor. 
(The LCL "eventer" (aka Queue) implementation is different with any 
"flavor" (aka "Widget Type") ).
