Tulip is the proof of concept. Asyncio is the name of the standard library

If I recall correctly it would be the other way around. Your code should
use asyncio to abstract away the particular implementation you are using,
be it twisted or whatever.

So. How much of that facilities are we using in buildbot?

Just because. It's a cool battery to have in the standard library and it's
the rage all over the place.
I was wondering if there was some plan on buildbot's side to adopt it.
