Thiago's points stand about Qt binding priorities, but I want to clarify 
something more general. Some of these annotations have to do with _how 
client code is generated_ but have nothing to do with _the interface_.

i.e. _any_ method on _any_ interface can be called async or not async.
The annotation just has to do with how _one app_ wants to call the 
method in a particular context.
