For Tramp, this has been discussed already in the past (and I did also
some experiments). Outcome in short: We would need new asynchronous
primitive file operations (or add an asynchronous flag to the existing
operations). Otherwise, it would break too many packages, which expect a
defined result of a file operation, when the function returns.

I would be happy to add asynchronous support to Tramp. After the design
has been fixed. `copy-file' might be a good candidate for a first shot.

See (info "(elisp) Magic File Names") for a complete list of primitive
functions supported by Tramp and other file name handlers.

Best regards, Michael.
