[tahoe-dev] CLI operations surprisingly synchronous

I'm using the CLI to copy things into a vdrive.  It seems surprisingly 
synchronous; the command seems to be blocked on the time it takes to 
upload things to other nodes over a wan.  I was expecting it to copy 
things into the local node, and then have the local node distribute the 
shares asynchronously.

Is this deliberate, so that there's at least some redundancy in the file 
before it returns a capability for a successful file creation?  Would I 
get the behaviour I expect by running a local upload helper?
