[New-bugs-announce] [issue40844] Alternate ways of running coroutines

New submission from Matthew Francis <4576francis at gmail.com>:

Currently, using await inside a coroutine will block inside the coroutine.  This behavior would usually be fine, but for some usecases a way to nonblockingly run coroutines without creating a Task could be useful, because tasks don't allow for a callback.  I'm suggesting a method on coroutines that runs them without blocking, and will run a callback when it's complete.
