[Python-ideas] Preemptive multitasking and asyncio

I found a question and answer at Stackoverflow[1] which says
that asyncio/await is like cooperative multitasking.

My whish is to have preemptive multitasking: The interpreter
does the yielding. The software developer does not need to
insert async/await keywords into its source code any more.

AFAIK the erlang interpreter does something like this.

I guess it is impossible to implement this, but it was
somehow important for me to speak out my which.

What do you think?
