I'll play with generator expressions gladly. I have been using list
comprehensions like mad, even in cases where I suspect a generator would
be better. Also, I have a few uses of generators that might look clearer
as generator expressions. So I'd be more than happy to make a test
version of my current projects using generator expressions, just to see
when they can make the code clearer, and whether there is anything about
the semantics that trips me up too easily.
I don't think my data sets are going to be big enough to test
performance, just usability.
Now, if someone checks in the implementation of PEP309 too <hint>, I
would be as happy as a biscuit...
