Reason why Perforce integration plugin blocks on P4 server?

I'm wondering from someone at JB why the Perforce plugin blocks on the
P4 server. Is it some restriction of the design of the plugin? I'm
thinking about fixing it myself to be totally asynchronous but I wonder
if this would be huge task involving redesign of plugin.

I'm not an expert in VCS, but it seems that we must clear readonly status
from the file to allow it to be edited,
and we do it via p4 -edit.

The common operations add, edit, integrate, are all about state and will
never fail. I plan to make at least these asynchronous, with a
toolwindow or dialog box for errors. Our team hates the "Wait More |
Disable Integration" dialog.
