I don't think it's worth it, so I have no interest in working on this,
but don't let that stop you from doing it.

Doubtful.  VC operations that do not change state are asynchronous (it
they are not, it's likely a bug/oversight).
Would commit make sense to be asynchronous?  Hmm, maybe, but until
someone sits down and does it we won't know.
Unfortunately VC is one thing that a lot of people like to talk about,
but very few actually want to do any work on.
