What's the problem with this, anyway ? Why would "from __future__ import
generators" or special flags be necessary to enable the existance of
generators ? I'd have thought it's just a parser directive (okay, so that's
tricky to implement) but to code that doesn't use 'yield' a generator is
just another iterator, right ?
