OK, I finally see the point. There are legitimate situations where

Unless there are tests that expect that get_event_loop() would return None
when called from within coroutine it should be fine.

So we want a separate function, e.g.
get_current_event_loop(). Send a PR to the GitHub project.

Also see related bug: http://bugs.python.org/issue26969
Yuri did some work, but he argumented in favor of modifying get_event_loop.

Should we continue discussion of implementation here or in that issue?
