  alert "Result A:" + a
  alert "Result B:" + b

# When all either succeeds or errors

# Works like .call() or .apply()

Q.nfcall(FS.readFile, 'foo.txt', 'utf-8')
.then -> ...

Q.nfapply(FS.readFile, ['foo.txt', 'utf-8'])
.then -> ...

Q.npost(FS, 'readFile', ['foo.txt, 'utf-8'])
.then -> ...

Q.npost(FS, 'readFile', 'foo.txt, 'utf-8')
.then -> ...

readFile = Q.denodeify(FS.readFile)
readFile('foo.txt').then -> ...
