AFAIK, you won't have any problems as Tk is single threaded and 
explicitely forbids to call any Tk related function from an other 
thread. So unless you spawn an other thread yourself and make it 
interact in a non-atomic way with your objects you should be safe as the 
Tk mainloop will call your functions/methods in a sequential way.
