I believe that's well-formed, but I'm pretty sure OP's main goal is to *avoid
writing the code twice*.

I do agree that it would be useful if Chuanqi provided a more fleshed-out
and realistic example. When the body of the function is only one line, it's
easy to say "just write it twice." If the function were more complicated,
it would be more obvious why "write everything twice" wouldn't be an
acceptable solution.
But I personally can't come up with such an example off the top of my head;
I'm not good enough at coroutine stuff.
