(redirecting to python-ideas - coroutine proposals are nowhere near
mature enough for python-dev)

The general issues with that kind of idea:
- the author hasn't offered the code for inclusion and relicensing
under the PSF license (thus we legally aren't allowed to do it)
- complexity
- maintainability
- platform support

In the specific case of coroutines, you have the additional hurdle of
convincing people whether or not they're a good idea at all.
