I was referring to this part of the original report:

This strongly suggests that the last-executed yield statement will raise an
exception if the generator is closed. If this is the case, it would be
great if the documentation could be extended to say what exception is

If this is not the case, it would be great if whatever magic is happening
could be documented as well.

If this is the case, if this is not the case... I was just saying that you
can provide some sample code in the issue that demonstrates what *actually*
happens and whether it's not explained well enough in the documentation.
