New submission from Simon Willison <swillison at gmail.com>:

asyncio.sleep(0) is the recommended idiom for co-operatively yielding control of the event loop to another task: https://github.com/python/asyncio/issues/284 and https://til.simonwillison.net/python/yielding-in-asyncio

This isn't currently explained in the documentation.
