Using another dependency is problematic, especially Guava. The policy
that rules Guava is totally opaque, nobody can propose patches that get
committed (

Plus, I don't think it's necessary to add an extra layer, when we can
just inject a callback into the async method call, which is probably
simpler than injecting the callback in a Future. But you can do both :
injecting the callback into the method call, or into the Future.

In other words, using Guava seems a bit too heavy...
