Choice of operator there isn't all that grand; at least to me, 
*sequence means expand the sequence out as positional args, eg

i = (1,2,3,4)
yield *i

reads as 
yield 1,2,3,4

when you're proposing it behave more like
map(yield, i) # and yes, I realize that isn't valid python.

Personally want something similar, but -1 for the syntax there.
