[Python-Dev] Adding c-api async protocol support

I'm with Victor: we are in beta now.

Making C API is useful and important but we may wait for new Python release.
The same for asycnio acceleration: we definitely need it but it
requires inviting C API also I believe.

Personally I've concentrated on making third-party libraries on top of
asyncio -- aiohttp etc.

Thank you Victor so much for your work on asyncio.
Your changes on keeping source tracebacks and raising warnings for
unclosed resources are very helpful.
