I know Glyph was using it at some point, and the assumption was it's
fast enough that you don't need to do anything special.

IMPORTANT: Deferreds do not make code magically not-block! They make
working with non-blocking code easier, but to make blocking code not
block you need to either split it up (e.g. long calculations), switch to
non-blocking API, or use threads.
