That's the approach I take with winapi - callbacks only happen on the main thread, and the mutex is unlocked whenever the main thread is sleep, either explicitly in winapi.sleep or through other 'blocking' operations.  When winapi is used with a GUI application, then I switch to dispatching callbacks on the GUI thread, using the message queue.
