in thread Perl 6 coroutines (RFC 31)

I believe that would create alot of nasty confusion, and make localized globals all but useless inside of coroutines. For instance, the following would be quite troublesome:
sub my_iter { for (@_) { yield $_; # upon return, $_ may no longer be localized. if we # modify it, we could be modifying a global value # outside our scope. there's no way to tell, and # that's rather nasty. } }
Of course, one could avoid using localized globals inside coroutines/generators in the first place, but where's the fun in that, I ask ;)
