It would be nice to show useful stack traces for async code like VS20123 does: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dotnet/archive/2013/06/26/announcing-the-net-framework-4-5-1-preview.aspx

This would probably involve capturing the callstack in the Task ctor if debugging, then the runtime would need to detect and integrate those when computing stacktraces that reach the top frame of a Task thread.

needs runtime and/or class libs support
