I think this part should definitely not be asynchronous: all it does is
try to figure out the state of a single file in terms of
"modified/unmodified/removed/added/...".  There is no reason why this
should take a long time.  So rather than make it asynchronous, I'd say
"make it faster".

Yes, it does make sense.  Actually most VCS operations should be
performed asynchronously.  So patches a very welcome in this part of VC
(PCL-CVS already does it all asynchronously, FWIW).
