The async/await is about asynchrony and spawn/sync is about parallelism. 
These are 2 different things which should not be mixed together.

Mono C# compiler has no async support yet (the .NET preview has been 
announced few days ago!) but we are fully aware of it and we will 
implement it as soon as time permits.
