The important thing is that the explicit modelling of the call-stack 
allows for running interpreters to be pickled - and thus stopped, 
persisted, reloaded and restarted. That is especially useful in comlex 
AI-code or e.g. workflow environments. The big difference is that you 
can _code_ as if you were always running and totally neglect the 
persistence and reentering issues.
