I think perhaps we're misunderstanding each other. You
seemed to be saying that the only time you would want
a generator to return a value is when you were also
using it to either send or receive values using yield,
and I was just pointing out that's not true.

If that's not what you meant, you'll have to explain
more clearly what you do mean.
