According to PEP 492, async and await should be full keywords in Python 3.7. That happened in https://bugs.python.org/issue30406

There is no mention of it at all at https://docs.python.org/3.7/whatsnew/3.7.html#porting-to-python-3-7 or anywhare on that page.

I consider this a blocker because it can break things:

    $ python3.6 -c 'async = 42'
    $ echo $?
    0
    $ python3.7 -c 'async = 42'
      File "<string>", line 1
        async = 42
              ^
    SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Thanks for the report.  The 3.7 What's New document is being completed right now at the PyCon US sprints.  CCing the editors.

Oh, didn't know that. Consider my PR as a remote sprint contribution. Hopefully nobody has already written this part.
