Hey, wait a minute. Did anyone consider the performance effect
of that change on deeply nested yield-froms?

The way it was, a yield-from chain was traversed by a very
tight C loop that found the end frame and resumed it directly.
If I understand what you've done correctly, now it has to
enter and execute a bytecode in every frame along the way.
