[New-bugs-announce] [issue24327] yield unpacking

New submission from Mital Ashok:

(This is more of a feature request than a bug, but https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0042/ said to post it here)

My request is to have syntax like this:

    yield *iterable

to lazily return the iterable's items, not much unlike:

    # ...
    for i in iterable:
        yield i
    # ...

This is because I constantly find myself yielding all the values in, say, a list, then modifying it and yielding it in a loop.
