I think generators have the potential to greatly change how node.js code is
written (for example it could look like this http://taskjs.org). However,
it depends on many factors:
1) How easy will it be to migrate existing node.js code? It seems that
most of the community has decided that a simple async library
(https://github.com/caolan/async) is good enough instead of promises. So
it may be difficult to migrate that to something like tasks.js or anything
else using generators.
2) Since node.js developers are used to chaining callbacks and using async
library, there may be a lot of inertia to overcome before generators can
have much impact.
3) What kind of impact, if any, will generators have on the core node.js
