No, in this case it is.

I'm abusing the term "asynchronous" here. It's being used in the same 
context as DCOP used it: fire-and-forget.

I know you can place an asynchronous-with-reply call, but that will not be 
allowed in the generated code for the Qt bindings. Any user who wants 
that will have to prepare the message himself and set the slot (callback) 
that will receive the reply.
