#Rustlang is looking to add generics over
async keywords: https://blog.rust-lang.org/inside-rust/2022/07/27/keyword-generics.html This could save us from e.g. writing separate async and non-async versions of the code, or at least hide the difference between a single name (to be disambiguated at compile time). Cool stuff!
@L29Ah Does it? I can write a function that calls await, and run it from both the Async monad and the IO monad? I bet I'll need some wrappers for that to work.
As for const, Haskell dodges the problem by not having const functions at all.
@minoru In haskell a function doesn't need any async-specific keywording or typing to be ran from async contexts.
