That's awesome, I really didn't know that!

I like being able to polyfill though, which was more the point of this. Writing clean async/await code and then compiling to an older version of node is great. I have to support node 6 in my day job.

Setting module to CommonJs will compile async await to ES6, the same way Babel does.
Buy this guide is pretty useful considering we can add more functionality with Babel and gulp later on.
