Good idea, only took a few minutes to hack it up, used a periodical, 
with a high decay and a 2 second frequency. Fork during first render, 
check for result on each callback, if nil, render hidden nextId to keep 
decay down, if not nil render result and count on decay to stop polling 
when it gets the same result twice.  Does exactly what I need.  Thanks, 
sometimes a new point of view entirely changes the problem.
