We can't make ordinary generators innately context managers, as it makes the error too hard to detect when you accidentally leave out @contextmanager when using a generator to write a custom one.

You can already use contextlib.closing to forcibly close them when appropriate, so providing a decorator to implicitly map __exit__ to close wouldn't really save much.
