But since many parts - like HTTPService - can be executed
asynchronously, they behave quite similar. If you send() a
HTTPService it 'seems' to execute in the background. On completion,
they may call a method or update a [Bindable] variable.
When working with threads, synchronisation tends to be
complex [deadlocks and race conditions]. Flex' async call mode
simplifies certain aspects.
