I don't think it is possible to remove a continuation barrier -- if
that was possible it would defy the security aspect of this feature.

However, a quick experiment with scheme/sandbox makes me doubt that
sandbox evaluators really automatically install continuation barriers
around the code they run:


(define my-eval
  (parameterize ([sandbox-output (current-output-port)])
    (make-evaluator 'scheme/base)))

((my-eval '(begin
             (define resume
             (define ((set-resume!/value v) k)
               (set! resume k) v)

             (display (call/cc (set-resume!/value 1)))

This code runs without problems in PLT Scheme 4.1.5, thus it is
apparently possible to invoke a continuation created inside the
sandbox outside of it.

Maybe a more detailed description of your problem would shed some
light on the situation...


When C++ is your hammer, every problem looks like your thumb.
