asyncore documentation now starts with this note (which was approved by the asyncore maintainer):
"This module exists for backwards compatibility only. For new code we recommend using asyncio."

Since asyncio is now part of the stdlib, I don't think that it's worth to enhance asyncore. asyncore has design flaws like its poll() function which doesn't scale well with the number of file descriptors.

The latest patch for this issue was written 5 years ago, I don't think that many people are waiting for this feature in asyncore. Delayed calls are part of asyncio core, it's well designed and *efficient*.

So I'm now closing this issue. "Upgrade" your code to asyncio!
