You appear to be mis-informed about Python 2.3. The best information
you can get about what will be in 2.3 is here:
Generators (quite similar to CLU iterators) were in Python 2.2. In a
fit of extreme paranoia, we made them depend on a future statement
(from __future__ import generators) to avoid breaking any code that
used a variable named yield. In Python 2.3 and up, yield is a
keyword. There's no new syntax.
