I do. But this is completely irrelevant regarding what is desirable to
offer to the users.
My ActiveNoGui draft does not use any GUI hook and it does work -
according to first simple tests.
The "different paradigm" I meant is "event driven programming" that
obviously requires an Event queue (but obviously does not require a GUI).
Or on a less sophisticated layer: Why have (force) the user use TTimer
in one project and fptimer in another ?

So you are (the only) one here who understand the implications and
nonetheless supports the idea of an "ActiveNoGui" Widget Type ?
Maybe it some day could be accepted in Lazarus, but I doubt it, because
I think I am able to take the library to a decent level, but I am not
able to do the integration in the IDE.
