> Too bad that 1.0 will ship without something like Scala Future's.

I see that as a good thing. Once something is committed to the standard library, it's very hard to get rid of it and the best practices surrounding Futures are still pretty shaky and keep changing from one year to the next.

Better let libraries fight it out and if a practice emerges as really good and long-lasting, then it can be incorporated in the standard library.
