The OP, i.e. I, did not mention doing any I/O in threads. The question 
was entirely whether TThread.Synchronize was usable in a non-LCL app, so 
that a background thread (emulating a legacy CPU etc.) can notify the 
frontend that significant status has changed (e.g. it's halted due to an 
invalid opcode).
