Or even spawn new research. And we'll be, er, cupto more things. (It's
difficult to reply in this thread!)

But delimited control captured my attention at this particular time
because there were three requests: one request for prompts to support
continuations in DrScheme's interaction window (it's much cleaner with
a prompt), one request for prompts to support Chongkai's embedding
application (similar to the DrScheme use, though more severe, since C
code is involved), and one request for delimited continuations to be
used in the web server.
