Why, but why, async and await keywords have been included in Python 3.5

Who cares about async pattern ? Python isn't Javascript ! Is Guido becoming fancy and/or crazy ?

With some real world examples, I'll explain the interest of async pattern and give some clues when it's interesting to use.

Moreover, I'll demonstrate why the inclusion of async/await+AsyncIO in the core of Python is a smart move, from a technical and political point of view. Finally, I'll present some libraries in the AsyncIO toolbox.
