I was curious to know what is the state of the following proposal:

I do believe that having ES native promises could provide drastically better
alternative for writing async code in comparison to currently popular nested
callback style. Also even though there are few implementations of Q API
adoption is still low IMO that's due to non obvious and verbose syntax.
Syntactic sugar described in the proposal really makes a lot of difference.
Also I don't see proposal for `Q.when` syntax and would love to know what is
the a plan for that.
