comment “Should probably be” vs. “should be probably”
Great additional answer. It's very likely that I caught the second form in an informal spoken context.

comment Is this a correct usage of “wait on”?
@simchona: because the answer is about English usage in relation with a programming concept, not programming. But I might ask in programmers.se

@FumbleFingers: considering there's an await keyword in C# 5, which takes a Task (that would be "to await a Task"), how would you put that in the present perfect? Wouldn't it be "the task has been awaited"?

@FumbleFingers and Peter: you both have good points. Maybe I should just use "...so it can be awaited", which is more commonly used, although it might have a slightly different connotation.

@FumbleFingers: it's not the task that enters in the "wait" state, but the current thread.

Indeed, the documentation for the Task.Wait method says "Waits for the Task to complete execution.". Considering that, would it be ok to construct the phrase in the way I described?
