+initialize is being run as soon as the library is loaded, I assume some __attribute__((constructor)) mojo.

There is no way for you to run +initialize as soon as the application starts on the main thread? Other things might fall apart as well, considering some things in modern OSes are per-thread; one example that comes to mind is OpenGL contexts, but other things probably exist too.

Just to confirm there currently is no way to set the defaultThread once it's been set by +[NSThread initialize] correct?  I realized today that for an application I have where the GNUstep library is loaded and +initialized is called from Java on a different thread than the JNI thread where I do all the GNUStep work.  And as such no thread that would ever execute Objective C code was considered the mainThread.  I'd like to either delay setting it until sometime after initialize or have a function to override the value from a different thread.  But from looking at the code nothing like that currently exists correct?
