On Pascal programmers usually don´t deal with the event-loops. They
are generated by some classes like Application, and the programmer
rarely interfers with it.

So I would say that threads are the normal way to go.

One quick question about dbus: Do signals timeout? I mean, if I wait
too long before reading the bus for a signal it may disappear?
(considering that the caller program is still active of course).
