But not met in a way that leads to a co-routine/uthread implementation
(much less continuations).
My impression is that the whole issue of what to do got bogged down in
-and-system-I/O?" issues. I think some folks aren't convinced that
full continuations are necessary (me neither -- I would be happy with
a coroutine-ish uthread implementation).

Not one that works. Jeff Rush did a patch awhile ago -- but it didn't
quite work. I haven't heard from him or Chris Tismer in awhile.
2.1 is sort of a dead-end; due to all the changes ->2.2 it's probably
better to target a 2.2-stackless. But harder also, since the previous
patches aren't going to help much...
