[PyQt] long running operations

I'd like to be able to do something in PyQt that I know how to do in
Java / Swing and that is run certain processes off of the EDT (event
dispatch thread).

Normally, I lock down different parts of the gui before hand, and then
re-enable them after the operation is done.

This must be possible in PyQt but I'm looking for someone to point me
in the right direction.

Does Qt have support for this type of stuff, and then which should I
use to do it.... Python or Qt?

Any help is appreciated.
