Awaiting thenables

Apologies, I’m aware the last example didn’t make sense. What I meant was
more along the lines of the following:

setImmediateOrOtherNextRunLoopMethod(function() { console.log(6) })
console.log(await { then: function(x) { x(5) } })

In other words, would the “then” fire on the same run loop (since it isnt a
fancy Promise), or still have the underlying await engine (step function)
make sure it takes place on the next iteration (and in this case thus
possibly make it show up after the 6 instead of beefore).
