This patch set is powerful enough to support Python-style generators, yes?
Coroutines would be insanely useful for fontification. I have a half-working
parser combinators library right now, but it's very much complicated by having
to compile everything down to (essentially) continuation-passing style so that
we can execute the code in small chunks and not block the UI.

Being able to write fontification code as a coroutine would be very nice indeed.
