[stuff deleted] a way to do that...

I came across this tidbit in which Main is called recursively and an extra signal is attached until Main quits. I tried a few ways to implement this, but couldn't get it to work.

So I have a couple of questions:

1) Is this possible in GtkD?
2) Any thoughts on implementation?

I forgot to include the link: http://www.getoffmalawn.com/blog/blocking-gtk-signal-handlers-without-freezing-your-application

That should be possible.

The get_something_async function in D would be something like this:

string get_something_async()
     gulong id;

     void activate(Entry entry)
	Signals.handlerDisconnect(entry, id);

     id = entry.addOnActivate(&activate);


     return entry.getText();
