An interesting idea here:
https://forum.linuxcnc.org/41-guis/32678-hazzy-another-touchscreen-gui?start=50#95287

He is running the Gremlin backplot in a separate thread to allow you
to home etc when the backplot is calculating.

This does seem like a splendid idea....

Oh dear Andy, you saw my gremlin hacking ;-)

It might be a good idea, but it was my first attempt at threading...
Need I say more?

Are you saying that you should not expose the code to water, expose it
to sunlight, or feed it after dark? (hint: allusion to the 80's movie
Gremlins)
