Surely it would be a dramatic change, probably deeper than new-style classes and generators together.
Rarely does one catch Guido (or most any Dutch, I believe) in such a wild overbid. Heat getting to you?-)
Protocol-Adaptation is (I believe) a nice idea, but somewhat of a marginal one when compared e.g. to new-style classes (a change whose consequences still haven't finished propagating through the language -- witness the recent issues about making exception classes new-style vs keeping them classic) -- and most evidently so if you ALSO add generators to that side of the scales!-)
