I'm trying to manage my gentoo box with a twisted server (A linux
Distro). Portage is very slow, and build the package first level tree
can take several seconds. I just wanted my page not to block while
loading, and put the result in it when it becomes available.

The list of the category is in a "wmupdate_category(self, request)"
method, in which I'd like to use deferreds.

Thank you gurus for your help !

Philippe - kind of lost sometimes with twisted :p
