> BUT I think removing the `if getattr(obj, '__code__', None)` from `_is_async_obj` actually makes this work correctly. It is possible for a coroutine object to not have a __code__, but I don't think it is possible for a coroutine function to be missing a __code__. 

Sorry, I am little confused here. If the code attribute check is removed then my test case in PR fails since obj.__code__ that is passed through iscoroutinefunction returns True. Maybe something along the lines of below that if there is a __code__ attribute then always check it's of CodeType. So that my test passes with MagicMock.__code__ detected.

If I understand the awaitable examples correctly, mocking the obj which is an Awaitable should be returning an AsyncMock. But obj doesn't contain __code__ and hence check for inspect.isawaitable is never done causing _is_async_obj(obj) to return False and subsequently it's patched with MagicMock.

from import Awaitable
from unittest.mock import patch

class NewCoroutine(Awaitable):
    def __await__():

obj = NewCoroutine()

with patch(f"{__name__}.obj") as m:

$ ./python.exe ../backups/
<MagicMock name='obj' id='4552158896'>

On removing the __code__ attribute check my test case of MagicMock with __code__ passes through iscoroutinefunction. Perhaps an acceptable tradeoff would be to check for __code__ and if present to be a CodeType or else to resume normal check like below. This way an AsyncMock is returned. Also there is no test failure. I have less understanding on asyncio terminologies over coroutine and awaitables so feel free to correct me if I am wrong. I guess it would be also helpful to have good number of tests for different asyncio object cases so that this could also be documented.

$ ./python.exe ../backups/
<AsyncMock name='obj' id='4363294672'>

# _is_async_obj to check for __code__ to be CodeType only if present.

def _is_async_obj(obj):
    code = getattr(obj, '__code__', None)
    if code and not isinstance(code, CodeType):
        return False
    return asyncio.iscoroutinefunction(obj) or inspect.isawaitable(obj)

# Also verified asyncio.sleep() to return True for _is_async_obj with above definition

>>> from unittest.mock import _is_async_func, _is_async_obj
>>> import asyncio
>>> _is_async_obj(asyncio.sleep(1))
