You may want to look further into your GUI toolkit, as well. I know
that wxPython has a thread-safe way of sending messages to a particular
window (wxPostEvent), which can be used to signal task completion. I
don't specifically know about other toolkits, but I wouldn't be at all
surprised if this is a common feature, since signalling worker-thread
completion *is* a fairly common task in GUI programs.
