That would depend on the implementation. I would expect that the key 
store is used by the login dialog, especially if you still plan to 
support multiple credentials per resources. IIRC, the Qt dialog provider 
runs on the Qt UI thread.

I have never used GCancellable. Given from the Glib doc, it looks like 
it would work. I have been reluctant to expose the low-level interrupt 
support because of nonobvious locking constraints. It seems prone to 
lock inversion bugs.

I don't know how those work. It might be tricky if you need a Glib main
