It seems cleaner to me for a worker thread to say:
result = blockingCallFromThread(func, arg1, arg2, ...)
q = Queue.Queue()
reactor.callFromThread(func, q, arg1, arg2)
result = q.get()
Especially seeing as the latter requires cluttering 'func' with details of
how to get the result back (i.e. a call to q.put), when the solution I
proposed in my previous email would make it transparent.
