It didn't occur to me that we can implement __await__ on concurrent.Future to integrate it *with* asyncio.  I guess it makes sense (although we don't have this kind of integration in 3.4 with 'yield from')

It is -- we just have to return "iter(asyncio.Future())"

Please see the attached patch -- it needs some more tuning, but it demonstrates that the integration is possible.
