I've talked myself back into supporting PEP0238, after many of
the eloquent posts here had swayed me the other way.  A 
latest snap shot of my thought process:

PS:  I'm really enjoying the generators and iterators stuff.  2.2a 
is a lot of fun.  The language is steadily becoming more powerful.

Note, in http://mail.python.org/pipermail/edu-sig/2001-July/001548.html
there's a coding error, should read:

def primes():
     """
     Generator:
     Yield next higher prime, starting at 2, accruing
     successive primes in global list pr
     """
     global pr
     pr = [2]
     i,new = 1,1
     ^^^^^^^

Of course the 2.2a docs themselves contain examples.
