While I think the name is misleading and in violation of PSF policy and/or
license, I am not too worried about this. I expect it will be tough to port
libraries from Python 3 reliably because it is not true Python 3 (e.g.
str/bytes). So then it's just a toy. Who cares about having 'async def' if
there's no backport of asyncio?
