Problem is, Kali did so much for you that you had little control.
If you want a system where the programmer can explicitly reify continuations
and migrate them over the network, try David Alan Halls' Tube.
The fine guys from Askemos might have something, too.
Finally, you might want to check out Matthew Fuchs' Dreme,
and various systems by Christian Queinnec and his students.

Google is your god.

I don't program enough to be called a "programmer", and I don't unprogram
enough to be called a "non-programmer". So I'm a non-non-programmer, which,
in intuitionnistic logic, is not the same as a programmer.
