Interesting. The original API for the Amara pushdom was that way: the
app registers a callback for each element subtree, but my early-peek
users found that too cumbersome, and asked if I could take advantage of
Python generators. I'm glad I did, because it does simplify the client
code a lot. It still uses call-backs under the covers, but these are
now all neatly wrapped by the main generator function.
