=head1 NAME

Job::Async::Client - client API for L<Job::Async>



This is the thing that submits jobs. It sends out a job request
which hopefully a worker will pick up and process.


use Job::Async::Job;

=head1 METHODS

=head2 id

Returns this client's ID. Although one can be configured specifically, it
will default to a random (v4) UUID.


sub id { shift->{id} //= Job::Async::Utils::uuid() }

=head2 timeout

Timeout to use for any newly-created jobs. No default.


sub timeout { shift->{timeout} }

sub configure {
    my ($self, %args) = @_;
    for my $k (qw(id timeout)) {
        $self->{$k} = delete $args{$k} if exists $args{$k};
    return $self->next::method(%args);

=head2 submit

Queue a new job for processing.

Takes zero or more C<key> => C<value> arguments to be used as
job parameters.

Returns a L<Job::Async::Job> instance.


sub submit {
    my ($self, %args) = @_;
