I think it's the behaviour that's important, and not the specific syntax
needed to implement that behaviour.

In other words, I disagree (if this is what you're suggesting) that
sticking "yield" in front of certain expressions makes it any less a
coroutine.

Now, requiring explicit yields does mean that the coroutine has
specific, well-defined points of reentry.  But I don't believe it's a
necessary condition that coroutines allow arbitrary (in the
non-deterministic sense) reentry points, only multiple.

Cheers,
Jason.
