with exactly (no more, no less) respect than you showed David

Peter, I think you simply "don't get it".

your definition of "broken" apparently doesn't match mine. I wish to be
able to view a thread invocation as a delayed (possibly remote) procedure
call, which _may_ return something (including an exception).
Insistance that I cannot do that seems pointlessly pedantic? You haven't
shown _why_ it's pointless.
I say it's a useful technique, you say it's rubbish.
Adopting what I want in this instance allows me to work and does _nothing_
to what you do.
Adopting your point of view, prevents me from implementing some solutions.

Which way do you want to play the game?
