    I’ll add GvR own words at async-sig mailing list (italics are mine):

    “I would caution against rushing into anything rash here. Nathaniel’s post will stand as one of the most influential posts (about async I/O in Python) of this generation, and curio is a beacon of clarity compared to asyncio.

    However, asyncio has a much bigger responsibility at this point, as it’s in the stdlib, and it must continue to support its existing APIs, on all supported platforms, whether we like them or not.

    I would love to see a design for a new API that focuses more on coroutines. But it should be a new PEP aimed at Python 3.7 or 3.8.

    I am tempted to start defending asyncio, but I’ll resist, because nothing good can come from that."
