continuations & Icon

Icon's control flow seems to be an interesting sort of parallel 
universe to continuations. It gives you something like coroutines, but 
without any explicit creation or resumption required (although there 
are explicit ways - by using co-expressions). I was thinking that using 
something like APL's adverbs that you could modify different call 
site's re-evaluation strategy so that it wasn't always necessarily in 
cartesian product order. It seems like you could take the Icon idea 
that everything is a coroutine and spin it into something farther along 
than Icon took it.
