Thank you for so positive feedback! Let's hope the PEP will be accepted in time!

Yuri, thank you for writing PEP 492!
Victor Stinner reviewed the asyncio chapter in my book, Fluent Python , and he saw how much I complained about the overloading of `def` to define objects as different as functions, generators and coroutines, and about `yield from` which doesn't say anything to me or to many others to whom I've talked.
With `async def` and `await` you solve both these problems! Also, `async with` and `async for` are brilliant. For the first time ever coroutines will be real first class citizens in Python!
Alas, the book  is entering final production so it won't cover Python 3.5, but I do hope to see what you propose in Python 3.5, and if there is a second edition, it will be a pleasure to explain `async` and `await`!
I did have time to add a paragraph about PEP 492 in a Further reading section, citing your name as the author.
