I thought there was some serious technical obstacle to that.

Where can I find Greg Ewing's suggestions about Python coroutines?  The
async/await stuff seems ok on the surface.

I liked the Lua paper about coroutines:

  http://www.inf.puc-rio.br/~roberto/docs/corosblp.pdf

it has a fair amount of historical info, comparison of implementation
techniques, etc.

But frankly the stuff I'm seeing in this thread makes me sad for Python.
It's an impossible dream but it would be awesome to have Erlang-like
communicating microtasks in Python.
