Do you have a specific use in mind? E.g., I believe there are things you can
do in the main thread that won't work in others, and other things
can be solved by appropriate communication between threads, etc.,
but without more clues it's hard to discuss it. I didn't look at
the example because I don't want to guess what "similar code" you
really are interested in ;-)
