It looks great.
I still don't catch why there must be a "self" as the first parameter
in a coroutine definition. Could the "current" function help here?
If removed, the "yield" function would be much easier to use.

Another question is, does a "coroutine" object act as both a coroutine
instance and a coroutine factory? According to the examples it seems
that sometimes a coroutine binds data when created, and sometimes
a coroutine uses operator () to create a new instance, right?
