I agree with Serhiy. There is nothing "magic" about generators in Python. Also, the concept of an infinite stream of random numbers (or random whatevers) is perfectly common (/dev/urandom being an obvious example); it is not a notion we are inventing.

By contrast, the two-function approach only makes things clumsier for people since they have to remember to combine them.
