Typeshed declares asyncio.Future, asyncio.Task and asyncio.Queue as generic types, which is 100% correct.

The problem is that these classes don't support generic instantiation in runtime, e.g. Future[str] raises TypeError.

The feature should be implemented by adding __class_getitem__ methods which return self.

The patch is trivial but requires a few lines of C code for C Accelerated CTask and CFuture as well as updating Python code.

A volunteer is welcome!
