I'm familiar with generators as a concept across multiple languages --
but I still found the  elisp docs confusing:-)

We explicitly say the interface is similar to that in languages like
Python -- which is why i coded up the Fibonacci example.

The cl-psetq is the right idiom here in that sense -- if you use plain
setq, you'd have to use a temporary variable?

Thanks for the coroutine example, again that would do well in the
manual -- there is a reference to coroutines either in the manual or in
code comments in generators.el that is presently "intriguing".

Finally, I  still dont understand the nested call to iter-yield in the
manual and  if it is correct, it would be good to have it better
explained there.
