Why are WebFormPost functions not executed asynchronously?

Why are WebFormPost functions not executed asynchronously?

By design, all browser level calls that contain request data (e.g. posts) are executed synchronously. This is because this is the way that a normal browser application behaves, and the asynchronously behavior sometimes "confused" the server resulting in errors and the need to manually insert a WebThreadWait function.

To enable asynchronous execution, use the undocumented WebSetOption(17, 0) function in your script.
