That's the problem: I just want to start the client and then, when the 
user selects "Scan" from the interface, I must send the broadcast and 
then act on replies from servers completely independent of the main 
thread of the application.

So I have two choices: I run the reactor in a separate thread, or I find 
a way to do a non-blocking communication using onReceive/onSend events.

Sorry for that.
