I can't support the yield statement, since this is occupied
by the new built-in generators.
But it is easily possible to use tasklets as generators.
They can be used like the ICON coexpressions, from anywhere.
Switching to and from such a generator is slightly more
expensive, probably like 4 calls to a builtin primitive.
