Are there plans to have an async executor? When mapping over a list of IO blocking tasks, it'd be nice to spawn them off in an event loop rather than threads or processes.

Hey Scott - no formal plans but it’s definitely not out-of-scope. Most people who request “async execution” are usually satisfied with Dask’s execution model but I realize you very specifically mean Python’s async model

Thanks, Dask functions and it's what I'm playing with currently. However, it consumes more resources than a single event loop would for certain workloads.
