What are the implications for the continuation-naive in a
post-stackless world. What about functions such as...
Today, either of three things happen:
1. before() throws
2. before() and after() are called exactly once each
3. x() never returns because y() never returns
As I understand continuations, we now have the possibility of y()
returning more than once, with after() called more times than before()
more-basic-than-goto is not an exaggeration.
