Yep. I use coroutines at a very coarse level of granularity, and it's
unusual for one to need to yield from anywhere but a top- or
second-level function.

Assuming the memory considerations weren't too bad, probably.... just
because there'd be no reason not to, and it could potentially help
someday. Also, because if it went into the core I'd need to update
Pluto to support it. (This has made me quite a conservative WRT
modifying the language. ;-) )
