We are very aware of this feature. However, we usually start working on 
new features when at least Beta1 is released as there are generally many 
changes between CTPs and Beta. This particular features does not require 
CLR changes but that's not as important as whether it will require a new 
mscorlib. Again, this is very early to say as the async will bring a new 
pattern to .net framework and it's not clear yet how existing 
asynchronous methods will be changed or updated or whether there will 
have a new Async implementation.
