Single handlers run in the "main thread". So yes, we care if we're
multithreaded.

But I have to say, I "non-concur." (Non-concur was a term I learned at
IBM. IBM seemed to be a breeding ground for making up words and
phrases, turning verbs into nouns, etc. "Non-concur" seems to be for
those times when saying "I disagree" just isn't strong enough!)
