tkinter: call root.after from a thread?

P: n/a
Let's say we have

root = Tk()
.... <layout gui, spawn thread etc....>
root.mainloop()

Is a safe to call the method root.after(...) from a separate thread?
(The registered callback updates the GUI). I know you're supposed to
avoid calling methods such as pack(), etc. from a thread, but I was
wondering if calling root.after() would be safe? I'm doing this in a
GUI without any problems, so far. Thanks,
