Interesting and not what I expected. Many folks couldn't be bothered to write a state machine, so we get blocking RPCs. And why do we get an hourglass or little spinning wheel on the screen? It's because some wanker couldn't be bothered to write a state machine!

So I'm curious as to what kind of state machine this generates. It picks up where it left off, but a serious state machine handles any input that could arrive. I'm guessing that this blocks, which is OK sometimes (guaranteed low latency) but not others (waiting for a reply from another processor). It's the latter case that can put a little spinning wheel on the screen for an unbecoming length of time, which is loathsome.
