Yes. Generators (and thus the yield keyword) are not available in python

First try doing: 
	from __future__ import generators.
In __future__ package you can find the features which are to become 
standard in the next releases. I don't remember when the generators have 
been introduced but maybe you will be lucky.
Otherwhise install a newer version of python.  You can probably do it 
without replacing the one you have, but I'm not using RH and I can't 
thell you how.
