This looks like a good change to me.

A few minor things: why not use a dynamic-wind instead of the outer
with-handlers? And you might as well put a (low-tech) continuation
barrier in there, since you have the dynamic wind, ie some state that
checks to see if the pre-thunk is run more than once and signals an
error if it is.
