Sounds about right. Just one detail: QCoreApplication::exec can only be called 
in the main thread and Qt thinks the main thread is the one where the first 
QObject was created, which is usually the QCoreApplication itself.

But you can use a QEventLoop in any thread. You still need to create a 
QCoreApplication in the main thread, but you don't have to exec() it.
