Without Waiting

Hi Bridger,

The basic answer is no. Rev doesn't support multi-threading.

However, you can use different 'wait' options in a long-running handler that 
will let you successfully interact with the UI, for example. You can also break 
a long-running handler up into smaller parts that get started by a 'send... in 0 
seconds' or whatever time you want. That gives you the same interactivity 
support as the 'wait' option.
