Hi Tridge!

I'm starting thinking about the Async coding... I debuged a few code through
modules requests but I still have a few doubts about how it works ... Is
there any documentation about the modules and/or any similar existing code
that I could follow as an example for the Async implementation?

When operational_search() is called, it builds a search request with
operation_callback as the callback function... That function is only called
after the search is done, right? I couldn't find where the reply message
passed to this function is filled (I suppose there would be the place where
I should fill with the parentGUID, would it be right?), could you give me
some tip?
