"asynchronous" hkpWorld::castRay, linearCast, getClosestPoints, and getPenetrations

Hi Forum,

I'm writing a wrapper around Havok and need to clarify what it's meant when the above hkpWorld member functions are designated as asynchronous. I'm guessing that it has nothing to do with getting the results back asynchronously but everything to do with the fact that those methods can be called outside the physics simulation (as a set of one-shot tests that return immediately). Can someone confirm that?

Thanks very much,
Jeff
