No way we aren't. We're not really adding anything to the existing
generator machinery (the exception/value passing is a trivial
modification) and that is only capable of 80% of coroutines (but it's
the 80% you need most :-).

As long as I am BDFL Python is unlikely to get continuations -- my
head explodes each time someone tries to explain them to me.
