[chimera-dev] asynchronous running of Chimera extensions

Hi Marcin,

Correct me if I'm wrong developers, but I believe you should be able to run
your extension as a "background process".  In linux it involve calling your
script with a "&" simple at the end of the command from terminal, i.e.

python test.py&

This would allow the process to execute in the background.

Hope that helps,
