Ok, you mean generator function, which produces generators, not generators 
themselves.  So what you want is a new isgenfunc function.  That makes more 
sense, in a sense, since I can see that you would want to wrap genfuncs 
differently from regular funcs.  But then I wonder why you don't use a 
different decorator since you know when you are writing a generator
