Improving asyncio.gather

Can we do something about asyncio.gather so that it can accept a list or set of coroutines, not just manually writing in the coroutines? That would be totally awesome

You can use the *args notation. E.g.

a = []
for i in range(10):
    a.append(Task(...))
results = await gather(*a)

Oh, so unpacking before actually passing the tasks into gather works. Wonder why I hadn’t thought of that in the first place. Thanks, Sir

For what it’s worth, I’ve always found it strange that asyncio.gather() takes awaitables as indivisual positional arguments, but asyncio.wait() only accepts an iterable of awaitables as the first argument.
