As another quick test, I went to google and searched for
  import yield def

and found (about hit 18)

]  def indent_to(self, new_level):
]   self.indentation_stack.append(new_level)
]   self.yield('INDENT', '')

The only other examples I saw in the first 200 hits were
a use of yield for Stackless, and that Java's Thread uses a 'yield'
method, which would be a concern for Jython.
