What possible use-case could there be for a numpy array of generators?
Furthermore, from the documentation:
numpy.asanyarray = asanyarray(a, dtype=None, order=None, maskna=None,
Convert the input to an ndarray, but pass ndarray subclasses through.
a : array_like
*Input data, in any form that can be converted to an array*. This
includes scalars, lists, lists of tuples, tuples, tuples of tuples,
tuples of lists, and ndarrays.
Emphasis mine. A generator is an input that could be converted into an
array. (Setting aside the issue of non-terminating generators such as
those from cycle()).
