Definitely. But not because it could block but because it must block. And the 
only safe way to do that is to run the asynchronous call in a separate thread, 
blocking the calling thread with a semaphore or waitcondition.
Loads of extra work for the maintainer of the synchronous wrapper for little 
extra convenience of the API using developer.
