Sorry, I was away for a while so I couldn’t respond to this right away.

Can you show me specifically how that would work, then? For instance, let’s say that we want to start N (unknown, i.e., not constant) async requests and then, only once all of them have begun, wait for all them to complete. What would that code look like?

Extending that example, let’s say we wanted to use one function to start the N requests and then use a different function to wait on them. What would be the signatures of these functions?
