I'd like to not limit it to the main thread only. Especially because this
allows to connect safely from any thread to any thread so you could even
use it in applications to connect to signals from library threads and
stuff like that.
Apart from that signal emissions from multiple threads isn't
supported by glib anyway (though we do it...).
