Implementations can't always cause a synchronous paint. On some platforms
you can only paint when you are idling. So it seems better not to provide
thread, it's bad practice to run a script for an extended period of time
(which would be the use case for forceRedraw). So I don't think
forceRedraw() is a good idea.
