Promise Terminology

Hi all,

I thought it might be helpful to compile a list of terms that different
libraries and languages are using for promises.

In general, we need two terms: one to describe an object which can set the
state of the "eventual", and one to describe an object which can only read
the "eventual".

This document is just a start.  If you feel inclined, please add to it by
leaving a comment here or on the document itself.
