Not sure, but probably not supported (yet).

agent_transact_unix looks like there is some kind of support for
optimistic non-blocking mode, but it also looks like there is nothing
that actually sets the agent connection non-blocking.

agent_transact_pageant (windows) do not look like it's prepared for
non-blocking use at all.
