Sweet.  Not quite right, but sweet.  I don't want to implement
everything in CPS.  The more you slow down continuations, the less
likely people will be to use them.  (Unfortunately, not all uses of
continuations have to do with server-client interactions, where
network latency and user pauses will often dominate ...)
