Hi Janet,

I know I have asked this earlier already, but what is the relationship 
between your library and QCoro?

Especially now that we are starting to use QCoro in some KDE projects 
(namely spacebar and plasma-dialer), it would be really unfortunate if 
they are not compatible.

The scope of both libraries seems to largely overlap, except for the 
future type that can be passed to JavaScript, which I think is something 
that QCoro is missing.

I hope this hasn't been asked already on this list, but I tried to check 
all replies I could find.
