How can Dan expect other Parrot developers (of the virtual machine)
to help develop code in CPS (for the virtual machine) if they don't
understand/trust the continuation constructs he plans to be passing
around within the VM (which they will have to be able to handle, or
process, or frob, or whatever)?

Of course Perl programmers don't have to care about the fact that
Parrot is flinging continuations left and right internally.  Dan is
talking about VM developers working *with him* on Parrot.
