To simplify scripting, add an apparently synchronous version of refresh.
well I guess there is kind of good news; I've figured out how to do this (also
for Task.requestAddXxxObserver). For every observable:observer pair there is
now an Observation object. The synchronized version could block on that object,
and then when the core has finished processing, unblock it vis:
Observation o = new observation (....)
send observation to event loop
return o.wait ()
The only restriction is that the method not be called by the EventLoop thread
- instant deadlock.
Having this will also likely make scripts easier vis:
Host = new LinuxHost ();
for (task in host.getTasks ())
of course this isn't an ok for the gui, that needs to be more agressive and use
the async mechanisms.
