That only answers the half-serious first part of my question. ;)

This code only works if foo() returns an Iterable, including a (yield)

    def bar():
        return (yield from foo())

It does not work for arbitrary Coroutines as they are not iterable, but it
might trick people into writing code that fails for non-coroutine
Coroutines. I'd rather like to have this either work for any Coroutine or
not at all.
