///All core data operations should be wrapped in this method for safety

NSOperation *operation = [[NSOperation alloc] init];
[operation addExecutionBlock:coreDataOperation];
[coreDataSerialOperationQueue addOperation:operation];
return operation;
///Usage somewhere in a UI callback
NSManagedObjectContext *context = comment.managedObjectContext;
[RCCoreData addCoreDataOperation:^{
//Note: wait for completion in the context of this operation
[context performBlockAndWait:^{
[comment setAPIVote:vote];
NSError *error;
[context save:&error];
//Handle error
//And if the save needs to be propagated to a persistent store
[context.parentContext save:&error];
//Handle error
