Claude suggested (yield?) or some such to get the last value passed via
.next to the now running generator. This would not pause execution. It
could be used to get that first-next value (this thread's subject) but
it could also be used unwisely all over, and it would require the
implementation to keep the last value passed to .next in a pigeon-hole
per running generator. Hence GC-leak honey trap.
