+ <longdescription>
+ aio is to Emacs Lisp as asyncio is to Python. This package builds upon
+ Emacs 25 generators to provide functions that pause while they wait on
+ asynchronous events. They do not block any thread while paused. The main
+ components of this package are aio-defun/aio-lambda to define async
+ function, and aio-await to pause these functions while they wait on
+ asynchronous events. When an asynchronous function is paused, the main
+ thread is not blocked. It is no more or less powerful than callbacks, but
+ is nicer to use. This is implementation is based on Emacs 25 generators,
+ and asynchronous functions are actually iterators in disguise, operated as
+ stackless, asymmetric coroutines.
