Are you referring to
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/medusa/message/299 ? IMHO this is
another case where the data is already ready to be sent to the
client. I was talking about the situation where collecting the data
is taking some time. E.g. in my case doing LDAP queries takes some
time and the LDAP API does not really provide a way of implementing
it completely event-driven like mentioned there.

Ciao, Michael.
