Yes -- I'm looking forward to Python iterators, too.

Since this came up in a Ruby context, I should point out that in Ruby you can write:

  for line in file
     ...
  end

It seems that Python is playing catch-up in this area (Java, Ruby and some other language environments have had iterators since their inceptions), but better late than never! The Python flavor of
iterator is pretty nice.
