I'm referring to msg200288.  I guess this is low priority, since
not many people will want to use asyncio on a build --without-threads.

Meanwhile, the patch addresses the buildbot failure.  I currently don't
have access to the machine with my ssh-key, so I can't commit the patch
right now.

New changeset 1c281f3de48f by Guido van Rossum in branch 'default':
Skip the asyncio tests when threads are not available.

I looked into this a bit more and it's tricky, because without threads, asyncio/ can't import some base exceptions concurrent.futures. Also, some tests create servers in separate threads, and getaddrinfo() would of course block.

Not sure if I'll ever want to support this...

I think it can be closed as "wont-fix". We had a poll on python-dev
about --without-threads a while ago, and the only systems that needed
it were older OpenBSD systems and a Fujitsu supercomputer with the
Fujitsu compiler.
