Yes, it's a standard idiom of continuations to implement coroutines
with them.

One virtue of using kernel threads is in principle the kernel threads
can take advantage of multiple hardware CPU's.  Python's global
interpreter lock stops that from happening, but I thought there was
some hope the lock might go away someday.
