Sometimes it helps me to remember Unix and Perl pipes of old and  
mentally replace the k's with |'s (vertical bars).  Continuations are  
not pipes, so don't take my analogy too far, but the endianness of the  
k notation helps me distinguish passing and receiving from invocation,  
or calls that do piecework from those that finish the job.
