+1 on the Item Collection Proposal.
One point I would like to raise is the case when background tasks (ie.
Mail) register to receive notifications.
It would be nice to have a few options to specify which thread to post
the notification to.
I can see three concrete cases:
1. CPIA wishes to receive a Notification. Post the Notification in the
main / GUI thread.
2. A twistedized service such as Mail wishes to receive a Notification.
Post the Notification in the Twisted thread.
3. A background task wishes to receive a Notification. Post the
Notification to a new thread (from a thread pool).
The third case above is currently employed by my WakeupCaller service code.
