Yes, but it still requires you to start a thread with the analysis and
terminate that thread if the user continues before it's finished. 

Also, we should make sure that the user doesn't do anything in the
interactive thread that interferes with the background analysis, i.e.,
all evaluation subroutines must be made thread-safe and we should
terminate the background analysis if the user does "analyse match" and
possibly also on "hint".

Yes, that is what I do as well.
