[New-bugs-announce] [issue38163] AsyncMock child mocks should detect their type

New submission from Lisa Roach <lisaroach14 at gmail.com>:

We want child mocks to match their "type" (async or sync). 


class Prod:
   async def foo():
    def bar():

a_mock = AsyncMock(Prod)
isinstance(a_mock.foo(), AsyncMock) == True
isinstance(a_mock.bar(), MagicMock) == True

Also this should include magic methods:

int(a_mock) should work and return 1 like MagicMocks do.
a_mock.__enter__ should exist and be a MagicMock, just as a_mock.__aenter__ exists and is an AsyncMock.
