I don't agree. I don't find generators *at all* confusing. They are a
very natural way of expressing things, as has been proven by how
popular they are in the Python community.

I don't *personally* understand async, but I'm currently willing to
reserve judgement until I've been in a situation where it would be
useful, and therefore needed to learn it.
