New submission from pfreixes:
Having the Event as the way to synchronize 1:N coroutines, the none happy path should be able to be expressed making possible call the `set_exception` for each future related to each waiter.
As an example the following code trying to implement a way to avoid the dogpile effect for a DNS cache. If the coro that holds the event fails, the original exception is also broadcasted to the waiters.
if key in throttle_dns_events:
yield from throttle_dns_events[key].wait()
throttle_dns_events[key] = Event(loop=loop)
addrs = yield from \
resolver.resolve(host, port, family=family)
except Exception as e:
# any DNS exception, independently of the implementation
# is set for the waiters to raise the same exception.
