Actually having such an "everything_manager", which deals with all the 
trouble of running things asynchronously would be an important thing. At 
some point I will also need this functionality, for connecting to 
external termination provers.

Maybe a UI architecture which is inherenetly asynchronous will provide 
this anyway and be even more general... But so far, atp_manager is the 
best we have, and it would be nice if it could be used for other tools, too.
