This message appeared while I was typing my reply, in which I
worked my way round to a similiar conclusion! So I'll write some tests
that test synchronous uses, with no Deferreds. Waiting for other results
to appear would only skew the timings, so I won't try timing any cases
with Deferreds in them.
