One question: what do we actually want to get?  What're the goals?

- A specification (PEP?) of how to make stdlib more async-friendly?

- To develop a separate library that may be included in the stdlib
one day?

- And what's your opinion on writing a PEP about making it possible 
to pass a custom socket-factory to stdlib objects?

I'm (and I think it's not just me) a bit lost here, after reading 100s 
of emails on python-ideas.  And I just want to know where to channel my 
energy and expertise ;)
