I don't see how providing an initial yield value directly
to the yield-from expression can give you any greater
functionality, though. Can you post a complete example
of that so I don't have to paste code from several messages

FWIW, that example doesn't fit David Beazley's definition of
a coroutine, since it uses yields to both send and receive
values. He doesn't think that's a sane thing to do.

An alternative viewpoint would be the idea that a coroutine
should always start itself automatically is too simplistic.
