Python 3.8 introduced `python -m asyncio` to run a Python shell with asyncio support. It had a note in What's New but was not documented, I think a note in should be helpful.

This could be a good issue for a new contributor.

I understood that it was more added as an "experimental" feature. Not sure if it's still considered as experimental in Python 3.9?

A few more bugs have been fixed in the parser/compiler recently for async/await keywords.
