The detailed async/await proposal cleared up a few bits for me—in particular, I clearly misunderstood how closely coupled `await` was to the expression with asynchronous components—so please ignore these sections of my email:

The "Future directions" section also answers the major question in "Dispatching back to the original queue"—you imagine it being done by the Objective-C importer—although my question about how it would be implemented remains. (I'm also not sure this is really just an Obj-C issue—queue confusion is a Swift problem, too—but that's a somewhat different point.)
