It is still work in progress, but if you are interested in, you might
test Emacs from its git repository. Check out the
feature/tramp-thread-safe branch, and compile.

With the new prefix command universal-async-argument ("C-x &") you
could trigger to the find-file-* command family to visit files
asynchronously. See also the Emacs manual, node (info "(emacs) Visiting")

Note that this is not fit yet for editing precious files. Any feedback
is welcome! Don't hesitate to ask if something is unclear.

Best regards, Michael.
