[chimera-dev] asynchronous running of Chimera extensions

Chimera has code for running jobs in the background while keeping the 
GUI active.  Some of this code is still under development and I would 
suggest using the daily build rather than 1.4.1.  Here are the relevant 
modules and an example:

   Module for running and monitoring background process
   Module for display background tasks in the task manager interface
   SubprocessMonitor is used in saveImage() to launch background POV-Ray

If you are using a web service rather than running the program on the 
local machine, there are other modules that may be of interest.
