I agree. I would also like to try out Groovy or Jython...  but I do have 
fears on diverging too much.

I mean: do you guys think we really got the point where we understand 
what we want to do with continuations?

I would like to have a discussion on where do we stand "research-wise" 
on the flow with continuations concept, before trying to attach "what 
syntax should we use".

I mean, it would be totally cool if we had

  - javascript
  - java
  - groovy
  - python

and then, just like we did with Woody, we would standardize on one.

But I still feel this is too early to do, I mean, we already have to 
sell the concept and we don't want to spoil our own marketing by 
early-diversifying that much.

This said, I see nothing wrong in starting a "continuations for java" 
project, say under jakarta, that would glue together people from cocoon 
and groovy (potentially rhino and jython too!).

This can totally happen in parallel.

And, if anything comes out, put it in the scratchpad for people to try out.

I mean, stabilizing is good, but we don't want to stop innovating either ;-)

In media stat virtus.
