Sequences are not immutable.  A sequence is allowed to be consumed by
iterating over its generator.  If the type you have is a sequence, you can
only assume that you can access the elements only once.  For example, a
socket can be modeled as a sequence of bytes.  Once the bytes are consumed
from the corresponding generator, they are gone from the sequence.
