Minimalist Asynchronous PVM

So adding support for asynchronous tasks turned out not to be so difficult. With a little help of Q's promises and support for composing them all it took was a minor rewrite of the main tick function...

Anyway, this version of the minimalist PVM can be found here, together with an example which queries the OpenWeatherMap API.

Note that in the process of doing this I also added some minor tweaks to the basic version of the PVM; the most useful of which is the ability to define a starting runtime state for the process upon activation. I extended the examples there as well to showcase this.
