Reading the code I was assuming that the flushing of the output stream 
would return the result to the client. But if you don’t see control 
begin returned to the client, then that’s probably not the case :)

I’m not sure I understand the suggested changes to the result 
framework sufficiently.
But I do think that we need to maintain control of the lifecycle of the 
Hyracks job and so just removing the waiting doesn’t sound right to 
I think that it’d be good to file an issue stating the problem clearly 
and to potentially add a solution proposal as a first comment.
