Deferreds in loops and recursive functions (Dojo)

When working with deferreds it sometimes is not that easy and intuitive as I thought. If you don’t know perfectly well how the deferreds work, then a little mistake can destroy all the fun you can have with deferreds … and bring you headaches.

Most of the times you probably will use deferreds that are easy to handle, like in the following example:

The usual way to get your Like-Button onto your site is to go to the Facebook website and get fetch some code that you simply put onto your page.
