This of course requests for a multithreaded application. (i.e. the 
threads that handle the blocking pipes communicate with the main thread 
via "TThread.Queue" or "Application.QueueAsyncCall").

In fact without a GUI binding currently you even can't use TTimer.

Exact,y this is why I am planing to do a "active NoGui" "Widget Type" - 
and since not that long I do know how this can be done. :-)

As Michael and Sven state, "TThread.Queue", "Application.QueueAsyncCall" 
depend on checksynchronize() (and TTimer needs a dedicated 
implementation in a new WidgetType, anyway).
