It allow among other things to run several sources all together (async
sources and normal sources), a synchronous process would block results of
all other sources.

But yes, having the possibility to use a synchronous process for a
single source would be nice in some cases.
Maybe I will write this in next versions of helm.

Indeed this is another feature I didn't think about ;-)

Thanks for your work on this.
