Cool.  Although this solution isn't going to be *that* much better, because
it will necessitate uncomfortable branching to deal with first iteration
vs. subsequent iterations.

On the other hand, something along the lines of:

    function *echo() input {
        while (true) yield input.value;

doesn't have the same problem.
