Well, I can a bit, if I take time to read the original documentation ...

"The EFL is, for the most part, not thread safe. This means that if you have 
some task running in another thread and you have, for example, an Evas object 
to show the status progress of this task, you cannot update the object from 
within the thread. This can only be done from the main thread, the one running 
the main loop. This problem can be solved by running a thread that sends 
messages to the main one using an Ecore_Pipe, but when you need to handle other 
things like cancelling the thread, your code grows in complexity and gets much 
harder to maintain.

Ecore Thread is here to solve that problem."

So, at least they provide off-the-shelf solution.
