Yes, it is. An important part of it is that 'cocall' would only
be allowed inside a function defined with 'codef'. Together
with the other restrictions, this makes it impossible to mix
coroutine and non-coroutine code in invalid ways. I don't
think it's possible to get that using yield-from and decorators
(at least not without a lot of inefficient hackery).
