For escaping continuations there is an analogy with exploring a system of 
caves.  Just before you go down into a cave you grab a handful of holes and 
put them in your pocket.  You go down into the cave and explore.  If you ever 
need to you can take one of your holes out of your pocket and climb into it to 
get out back at the top where you started.  Furthermore you can leave holes 
wherever you please and come back later to climb into them to escape.  Can 
this analogy be extended to explain how to use continuations to program 
co-routines etc.?  Help yourself if you think it's useful.
