The DEP for async menytions that async generators should be supported in StreamingHttpResponse.

After some digging, it seems that at least StreamingHttpResponse itself and ASGIHandler.send_response need changes to support that?

Yes, this is probably something we should take as a new feature, but it's a little undefined at the moment.

Can I point you to the Forum Async topic:
That's a good place to discuss it, and get fleshed out what would be required.

I'll cc Andrew, as maybe he already has thoughts.

We definitely should expand to add this, but async generators are quite tough to support across a range of Python versions; they get increasingly better to use every version. I think the best approach here would be an exploratory patch to see what we can get that looks reasonable given Django's current supported Python versions - 3.6 might be a high enough baseline (3.5 is very problematic), but it might be a thing that's easier in a future 3.7+ release.

Isn't this supported in 4.2 via (0bd2c0c9015b53c41394a1c0989afbfd94dc2830) #33735?
