And deferredGenerator in twisted.internet.defer is the robust way for that.
It blows up python readability in contrast,but once you got them and 
made your library I think they are also usable.
I do believe, without deferreds in the core ,python will have bad times 
surviving the net, but that's really an opinion.

Have fun, Paolino
