[Python-Dev] PEP 492: async/await in Python; version 5

Thanks for these stats! (Though I'm sure there's some bias because Tkinter
is in the stdlib and the others aren't. Stdlib status still counts a lot
for many people, pip notwithstanding. (But that's a different thread. :-))

FWIW I tried to get the Tkinter-asyncio demo mentioned in the above thread
to work but I couldn't (then again Tk on OS X is difficult). If someone
could turn this into a useful event loop that blends asyncio and Tkinter
that would be truly awesome!
