why not add __enter__ and __exit__ to generator objects?
it's really a trivial addition: __enter__ returns self, __exit__ calls
it would be used to ensure close() is called when the generator is disposed,
instead of doing that manually. typical usage would be:

with mygenerator() as g:
    bar = g.send("foo")
