Would it be even remotely possible...
... to write a co-function program in a way where it could be switched from
cooperative multitasking to preemptive multitasking by the use of a single
flag? (I'd be +10,000 for this.)
If so, it would enable a way to hide a lot of details of multi-tasking and
multi-processing in a convenient to use api.
No I haven't thought it though all that far. But it seems to me it might
be able to work if generators could work in a suspend before yield, instead
of a suspend after yield mode.
Ideally pie in the sky,
Hey, this is the idea list after all. ;-)
