recently, I stumbled over the new 3.5 release and in doing so over PEP 0492.
After careful consideration and after reading many blog posts of various coders, I first would like to thank Yury Selivanov and everybody else who brought PEP 0492 to its final state. I therefore considered usage within our projects, however, still find hazy items in PEP 0492. So, I would like to contribute my thoughts on this in order to either increase my understanding or even improve Python's async capability.
In order to do this, I need a clarification regarding the rationale behind the async keyword. The PEP rationalizes its introduction with:
"If useful() [...] would become a regular python function, [...] important() would be broken."
What bothers me is, why should important() be broken in that case?
