Good.

I'd be a lot less hesitant if this was a year ago (or more), when we had 
most of the design and implementation ahead of us.  Going back to make 
fundamental API changes now is a much bigger hump to get over.  I'd like 
to see if there are smaller changes we could make that would ease moving 
to a Futures API in the future (no pun intended).  Such changes might 
also make it easier to build a Futures API JS library on top of the 
current API in order to experiment with the idea and refine the design 
for eventual incorporation into the spec.
