Debuggers and async/await should work together better: I have testcases.

Maybe on Firefox (just verified), not on Chrome. The experience in Chrome
(so, the combination of Chrome's devtools and V8's support) is very good
indeed. Stepping over `await` just steps over it. Stepping into it steps
into it. Extremely natural. Haven't tried Edge's F12.

So a Bugzilla report may be appropriate, although I suspect there's one
already there and/or that they're already on it.
