Indeed, the AnyGenerator type conforms to SequenceType, allowing any generator to be wrapped as a sequence, though I imagine this comes with some overhead. So it got me thinking, why doesn’t GeneratorType just require conformance to SequenceType?

Because of compiler bugs.  We have the default implementation in the
library already, we just can't declare the conformance.
