Sure. Use Stackless python and tis continuation module,
and you have a way to express goto's. :-)

Well, to be honest, there is currently no good way
to collect the "labels" of a program as continuations,
but I'm considering how to implement this.
Maybe you can help me with a layout proposal? I would like
to implement multiple-entrypoint-functions in SLP 1.3.
