Sorry, I missed that bit -- you're right, it does need to be
allowed for in PEP 380 if we're to do this. I'm still not
convinced that it isn't a wrongheaded idea, though. The fact
that it doesn't play well with yield-from gives off a very
bad smell to me.

It seems highly incongruous for the PEP to propose a feature
that's incompatible with the main idea of the whole thing.
