This is rather important. I'd like to continue maintaining this similarity. 
Adding 'await event' would be similar (in a way) to making instances of 
threading.Event callable.  So deprecation of '.wait()' isn't something we will 

Having *both* 'await event.wait()' and 'await event' worries me.  IMO the 
slight readability improvement isn't worth the added complexity.
