asyncio.async() is a deprecated alias for asyncio.ensure_future().

Since Python 3.7, async and await are proper keywords, and it is no longer possible to use the function.  I.e. both 'from asyncio import async' and 'asyncio.async(...)' are a SyntaxError.

The function has been deprecated since Python 3.4.4.
