Thanks, Terry, for that excellent summary.

I'm really glad that you raised the problems with my original essay, because now
I have a much clearer picture of what is happening. Or rather, my picture is
almost the same, but my terminology when describing it and using it will be
*much* cleaner.

This kind of collaborative model development is, to my mind, what Usenet is
great for. When I first approached the generators and coroutines concepts, I
really needed to find a discussion similar to the one we've just had, to help me
clarify my thoughts. And now, thanks to the magic of Usenet archives like Google
Groups, etc, our model is preserved for all to see and use.

Thanks, Terry, it's been fun :-)

And of course, thanks to all the other contributors to this thread.
