# 2) function existence
# this line tests for presence of the method and is likely considered more "pythonic"
# this would also make more sense if the method on the AsyncAction was named "is_async"

# Current actions in Mistral would be unharmed and backwards compatible
# we would simply add the following block in the default_executor to ensure
# new actions would get the context as needed
