Not blocking GUI by network worker needing asyncio?

Hi all,

my knowledge who GIT, threads and asyncio playing together is still limited.
I have long running network operations, using the dnspython package, which should not block the GUI.

Now the question: If elapsed time of net work is not an issue, do I need the async version of dnspython and async/qasync in my worker thread (setup per moveToThread and using an QEventLoop)?

Thanks, Axel
