[Stackless] Continuations in Forth

Really? Aren't two different continuations supposed to be
completely independant? Or do you mean, that his happens
as a consequence to Pythons semantics? So, if continuation
one has a variable that refers to some object A and continuation
two refers to it as well, and object A is mutable, it would
appear changed in both continuations? That would be okay,
as it is a direct consequence of Python semantics.

I didn't want to suggest to "copy" values of objects into
the continuations, that would not be in accordance with
Pythons semantics. Maybe i should've better said: "a
continuation stores an IP and the references that are
contained in the local variables".  Does this describe
the actual situation better?
