'yield from' was a happy accident -- there just happened to
be two existing keywords that could be put together in a
suggestive way. We don't get that lucky very often.
The problem with general-purpose syntax extension hooks is
that they don't usually allow you a syntax that's really
well tailored for what you want to do. Typically you end up
with something of a kludgy compromise.

Beats me. My crystal ball has been having reception problems
for years. Really should get a new one.
