I think yes. Perhaps I'm over-generalizing, but it seems to me that
because python has blocking I/O, inlineCallbacks is the outlier use-
typically has no blocking I/O.
So if new keywords are verboten, and arguments.generator is verboten
(which would be better than nothing, I say), then what's left? Is a
static method on the Generator class a reasonable option?
