Has anyone checked out or used
http://docs.python.org/py3k/library/itertools.html ? Seems worth
considering since ES6 generators are derived from Python generators.
Indeed, there's no way to detect an infinite generator ahead of time.
Some array extras do not make sense even for very large arrays. Again I
cite Peter Norvig's constraint-propagating-search-based Sudoku solver,
which I ported to JS1.8:
It definitely requires generators not arrays in places, to avoid
exponential space blow-up.
