Subject Re: Completions in C API
Date Thu, 03 Jun 2010 20:33:36 GMT
the call is executed at a later time on a different thread. the zoo_a* 
calls are non-blocking, so (subject to the thread scheduling) usually 
they will return before the request completes.

for zoo_aset says the completion is "the routine to invoke when the request completes." Does
this mean that the completion is called some arbitrary time after the request completes, on
a different thread? Or is it guaranteed to be executed on the same thread as the thread initiating
the zoo_aset call, and complete before zoo_aset returns?  Or something else?
