Default Async await for embedded C/C++

The point is to write code that reads like it is blocking, when in fact it is cooperative non-blocking multitasking. Something like Protothreads / finite state machine, but as language feature.
Could be used instead of an RTOS when it is not needed/not desirable, and easier to reason about as it is not preemtive, and could be stackless.

As far as I know, only Visual C++ 2015 implements such a thing(?). Anybody tried it / has experience with it?

Is there interest in this language construct for microcontrollers?

Default

Coroutines have been proposed, but didn't make it into C++17. In the meanwhile, there are existing implementations of coroutines, eg. Boost.Asio, and libraries like Protothreads.
