The yield statement looks to be a big step toward some kind of lightweight

hurls a value in?

If this is not implemented now, is there any chance that it's on the list
of things to come?

Well, aside from Stackless's microthreading, you might want to check out
Twisted -- it isn't as magical as yield, but it gets the job done pretty
