I'm still not quite sure that the specific problem I'm looking at is due to 
continuations. I agree that for the overall robustness of the code we should 
get rid of the continuation stuff (nice idea but problematic in contact with 
C++ as I only now realize).   If I have time I will try to replace the 
continuation code with a system based on closures (i.e. explicit continuations).
