James did mention that in the post, although he didn't say what
deferreds really added beyond what futures provide, and why the
"add_done_callback" method isn't adequate to provide interoperability
between futures and deferreds (which would be odd, since Brian made
changes to that part of PEP 3148 to help with that interoperability
after discussions with Glyph).

Between PEP 380 and PEP 3148 I'm not really seeing a lot more scope
for standardisation in this space though.
