Ok, this is a nice feature but it could be implemented by the  
programmer using threads . If I want a sequential behavior I will  
have to loop by catching connections errors until the connection is  
completed. The loop will also have to distinguish between real  
connection errors and "still not connected" errors. This is a little  
odd to me but I can write such a function.
