Given what has been said thus far
https://github.com/domenic/promises-unwrapping/issues/19 my
inclination is still to leave it out initially and give a version
without done() six months to a year to mature. Not having done() can
make promises harder to debug in the short term, but adding done() is
trivial to do later. And given the lack of native promise
implementations to date there's no way for us to test the done()-less
design without trying it first.
