Yes, I agree 100%.  Not having something like "yield_all" hurt my
ability to learn to use Python's generators quickly because I figured
that Python had to have something like yield_all.  But no matter how
hard I looked, I couldn't find anything about it in the manual.

So the argument that adding a feature makes the language harder to
learn is a specious one.  Sometimes an extra feature makes the
language easier to learn.
