This is part of the reason that I don't like the idea of
controlling the scheduler by yielding instructions to it.
There are a great many ways that such a "scheduler instruction
set" could be designed, none of them any more obvious than
the others.

So rather than single out an arbitrarily chosen set of
operations to be regarded as primitives that the scheduler
knows about directly, I would rather have *no* such
primitives in the public API.
