I have been avoiding this thread too - even if I have implemented my
own trampoline as
everybody else here - because I had nothing to say that was not said
already here.
But just to add a data point, let me say that I agree with Eby.
I am 0+ on the syntax, but please keep the hidden logic simple and
absolutely do NOT add confusion
between yield and return. Use yield Return(value) or raise SomeException(value),
as you like. The important thing for me is to have a trampoline in the
standard library, not
the syntax.
