The language looks great.  

I would love to see support for 'await' 'defer' - in the same way as Iced Coffee Script.  An async annotation could be added to help support this and make asynchronous programming easier.

I agree that this would be cool to see, but if this is implemented, I hope that it doesn't require a heavy runtime library – I know that jashkenas has avoided merging IcedCoffeeScript into the main CoffeeScript repo because the generated code is unreadable.
