So, see the commentary on the bioblend issue you added as well, but in short -- while you should currently expect to wait while the entire workflow was queued, bioblend *should not* be blocking waiting for all jobs to complete and that sounds like a bioblend bug if it is. That's what the 'wait' param is for after all.

Thanks Dannon. Looking forward to the resolution. We've got some long workflows (100+ steps) that take days to compute. It takes about 2 minutes to finish queuing tasks, and then I found that they continue to execute even if I interrupt the bioblend thread. I'll add a signal.alarm interrupt to kill the bioblend thread and continue manual monitoring.

There is no reason workflow invocation *has* to be synchronous, but
how galaxy works right now as, mostly, a historical artifact. Workflow scheduling happens inside the web request, and other than bioblend

This is definitely suboptimal, and backgrounded (among other
scheduling) workflow invocation is something we're working on right now,
it's a high priority.

I'm using bioblend to launch a workflow, but i find that the gi.workflows.run_workflow() command does not provide an option for no_wait.
Can anyone provide justification for why this needs to be synchronous?
