[Python-ideas] asyncore: included batteries don't fit

I'm not quite sure why Deferreds + @inlineCallbacks is more complicated
than Futures + coroutines. They seem, at least from a high level
perspective, quite similar. You mention that you can both attach callbacks
and use them in coroutines: deferreds do pretty much exactly the same thing
(that is, at least there's something to translate your coroutine into a
sequence of callbacks/errbacks).

If the arcane part of deferreds is from people writing ridiculous
errback/callback chains, then I understand. Unfortunately people will write
terrible code.
