Heh, I was thinking of that too, as an alternative to the `awaitall`
and such I suggested to Andrea so we didn't need to add Yet More
Keywords. :-)

```js
await.all iterable;
```

instead of

```js
await Promise.all(iterable);
```

? That seems pretty clear to me, and doesn't seem like a big
specification or implementation burden (he said, talking through his
hat).
