I remember seeing you deferred.el a few weeks ago, but it seemed just
complicated enough that I shied away.  I wanted an interface that was
literally just one function large, `async-start', since that covers nearly all
of my real-world use cases.

I'm interested to hear more about this.  Although I'd like to figure out why
pipe communication in Emacs appears to be broken, since that already available
on all platforms supporting start-process, and requires no other libraries to
be loaded.

This is wonderful!  Thank you so much.  I've wanted a more visual way to query
SQL in Emacs for some time.
