[Python-Dev] yield without future statement?

On c.l.py, there's a small discussion going on the necessity of a
future statement to enable the yield keyword. The general opinion
seems to be that the future statement is redundant, since previous
uses of yield will generally result in a syntax error -- and there
aren't very many uses of yield in the first place. The other uses of
future (nested scopes and division) were needed because these features
cause *silent* failure -- but with yield, you'd have to work really
really hard to cause a silent failure.
Opinions? I'd love to get rid of this particular future statement.
