See the discussion in <http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.devel/149634>.

There are sometimes unavoidable delays in using Tramp to access remote
files. It would be very useful if it were possible to load or save a
buffer using Tramp in a non-blocking way so that use of Emacs on other
buffers could continue.
