Currently, it is not foreseen to run this asynchronously (aka as an own
thread). If we would do it, there might be problems in interactive
dialogues, like password prompts.

Some months ago, I've worked on thread support for Tramp. This work is
stalled ATM. And it was related rather to file visiting operations, but
asynchronous processes.
