Comparison to Guava ListenableFuture

Guava's ListenableFuture takes the same basic approach of passing a Runnable and an Executor for the callback. It should be trivial to extend the INotify and IDeliver protocols to Guava's ListenableFuture and SettableFuture.

The implementation in Guava is more sophisticated than the one in cljque, using an AbstractQueuedSynchronizer instead of monitors.
