After trying out some example code in issue 24578, I've changed the suggestion function name to "call_async". The reason is because it makes this kind of code read quite well:

    futureB = asyncio.call_async(slow_io_bound_operation)
    futureC = asyncio.call_async(another_slow_io_bound_operation)
    a = calculateA()
    b = asyncio.wait_for_result(futureB)
    c = asyncio.wait_for_result(futureC)

And still reads well when combined with await:

    b = await asyncio.call_async(blocking_operation)
