Oh, in fact recvall() is a bad name. The io module uses the "readall()" name to really read all content of a file, whereas "recvall(N)" here only read up to N bytes.

It would be better to reuse the same name than asyncio, "readexactly(N)":

asyncio and http.client already have their IncompleteRead exceptions. Maybe it would be time to add a builtin exception?
