[New-bugs-announce] [issue26395] asyncio does not support yielding from recvfrom (socket/udp)

New submission from Simon Bernier St-Pierre:

I want to receive data on a UDP socket that was bound, without blocking the event loop. I've looked through the asyncio docs, and I haven't found a way of doing that using the coroutine API (yield from/await).

There is a sock_recv method on BaseEventLoop which is a coroutine, it seems like sock_recvfrom was never implemented.

I don't have a patch for this right now, I wanted to know what people thought of adding support for this.
