Re: [sc-dev] jost - gui helpfiles - some typos

IIUC, in SC an operation is either blocking or asynchronous (because VM threads are non-preemptive). Possibly that's another reason to isolate gui calls on one thread: if objective-C allows preemptive threading (which it probably does), thread safety is an issue that's avoided by queuing all calls in a single thread. Just a guess.

probably it is good to distinguish blocking from non-blocking (which can both be the case with either synchronous and asynchronous calls).
