chainable

Create fluent asynchronous APIs.

Extend the Chainable class and use the chainable combinator to designate asynchronous methods as being chainable. Methods wrapped with the chainable combinator will be treated as chainable when they are not passed a callback. Each method in the chain will be executed in series, passing it's result to the next method. Pass a callback to the final method to end the chain and begin computation.
