Wing does infer some return types when it finds the source code for the 
function being called, including (probably) the cases where such an 
iterator would be used.  As a trivial example, the following should be 
analyzed successfully:
   def bar():
     return ''

The option I talked about adding would try to give you something like 
the simple completion option found in other editors.
