Yeah, I fully agree with the rationale given by Richard, invokeAndWait
has been (and still is) one of the main sources of troubles for many
poorly written Java programs, is really too easy to get this done
wrong, so omitting it from the core API was a wise decision imho,
people who know what they are doing can leverage the same
functionality with little effort.
