Cocoon control flow


It looks like Cocoon control flow based on continuations is gaining admirers and I'm about to be sanctified [1 2 3]!

However I'm not the one that came up with this idea. My good friend Florin Mihaila pointed it out in Christian Queinnec's paper. And Christoper Oliver did an amazing job implementing continuations in Rhino JavaScript. Many other people, including Sylvain Wallez, Michael Melhem, Marcus Crafter, Reinhard Pötz, Stefano Mazzocchi contributed with ideas and code to the current implementation. Thanks all!

The real saint is obviously St IGNUcius (picture). The Church of Emacs even has a hymn, listen to the live recording of it ;)
