I don't think this is limited to Python 3, 2.7 has generators, too. So ack.

No, iterators and generators don't have a common class hierarchy. In
this the way the code looks now is pretty much the best one can do.
You could mess about with something like this:
but that will happily consume all strings one byte/char at a time, so
you'd still need an extra condition around it.
