You are right about that for generator *objects*.
But _isaGeneratorFunction tests for generator *functions* (the ones you
call in order to get a generator object) and those must have a func_code.
So in your example::
>>> from compiler.consts import CO_GENERATOR
>>> Z().__call__.func_code.co_flags & CO_GENERATOR
>>> Z.__call__.func_code.co_flags & CO_GENERATOR
You have to use __call__ directly, you can't use the code-object-flag
test on the callable class instance Z(), but I think that's just as well
since this kind of test should not be necessary at all, except in rare
code parts (such as Diez' microthreading experiments).
