[docs] [issue22112] '_UnixSelectorEventLoop' object has no attribute 'create_task'

Guido van Rossum added the comment:

asyncio has an explicit exemption from the general rule that bugfixes
should not add new features. This is because of the "provisional" status of
the PEP. We'll stop doing this once 3.5 is out.

I don't know what's up with the online docs.

> First, if there is documentation that says, "3.4.1", doesn't it make sense
> that the documentation should only be for 3.4.1? Which means that this
> create_task documentation should be reverted in the 3.4.1 documentation to
> match the 3.4.1 specification.
> Second and most respectfully, why is a feature being added in 3.4.2? I
> thought this kind of release (3.4.1 to 3.4.2) was for bug fixes and
> security issues, not new features. Unless create_task was in the original
> 3.4 specification, I argue that create_task belongs in 3.5. In it's place,
> a recipe of running tasks in parallel fashion per gvanrossum's suggestion
> of asyncio.async() could be added.
