@devinivy thank you, looks very interesting, but mind bending.

i agree that it is pretty mind bending, but i get the gist of how powerful this abstraction is when i see example implementation of try/catch semantics from scratch in userland.
implementing exception handling is the first, simplest example, and it really isn't very much code! i think if i keep reading they'll implement interleaving, cancellation, etc. later
