Using ML 8

I’m refining a profiling application that spawns a number of tasks and then, 
eventually, reports on the results once all the tasks have completed.

Right now I just fire off the tasks and then refresh my app, which looks for 

It would be nice to be able to show the status of the spawned tasks but it 
looks like xdmp:spawn() doesn’t return anything (sort of expected to get some 
sort of task ID or something) and so there’s no obvious way to track spawned 
tasks from the spawning application.

I could do something like generate private task IDs and pass those as 
parameters to the spawned tasks and then maintain a set of task status docs, 
but I was hoping there was some something easier.

It seems like it would be a common requirement but I couldn’t find anything 
useful in the ML 8 docs or searching the web.
