If you give it a default value then you can use
without having to use a suspend function. Of course, then you will have to duplicate (or extra a helper method) to get the same result as from the combine method
Copy code
val firstField: StateFlow<String> = MutableStateFlow("a")
val secondField: StateFlow<Int> = MutableStateFlow(11)
val scope = CoroutineScope(Dispatchers.Default)
val canDoSomethingScary: StateFlow<Boolean> = scope.combineStates(firstField, secondField) { first, second ->
    first.isNotBlank() && second > 0 && second < 10

fun <T, U, R> CoroutineScope.combineStates(
    stateFlow1: StateFlow<T>, 
    stateFlow2: StateFlow<U>, 
    started: SharingStarted = SharingStarted.Eagerly,
	suspendTransform: suspend (T,U) -> R = { arg1, arg2 -> transform(arg1, arg2) },
    transform: (T, U) -> R) = 
    combine(stateFlow1, stateFlow2, suspendTransform).stateIn(this, started, transform(stateFlow1.value, stateFlow2.value))

The main idea is to avoid being suspended and couroutine scopes where it is possible. Making view models should be as simple as possible.
I will remove the post everywhere except #coroutines channel. So please ask your questions there or, that would be better, on GitHub.
