Not particularly, and this was where I landed at first.
In the SpiderMonkey implementation, at first, the bytecode emitter emits
the implicit yield opcode (JSOP_GENERATOR) before all other generated
code. But since then some conditional opcodes are emitted even before
the implicit yield:
Other implementations may generate different intermediate or target
forms from source, but I think the choice of where to put the implicit
yield can be made either way without hardship.
Other implementors should weigh in.
