I was using "asynchronous/synchronous" in the traditional
sense. As far as accepting a connection, the last time I
checked on this, which was a couple months ago, it wasn't

The fact that it's available on MozDev and licensed under
the GNU General Public License makes it a moot point,
but sure, you're welcome to anything you can use.
