+1, the base continuations stuff certainly deserves a separate 
distribution. But there's no hurry, it can live here for a while.

Agreed, but I still think the "official" focus should be on *one* Flow 

It seems like we all agree to declare the java Flow experimental for 
now, but we must be careful about the user's perception (which is 
reality ;-), by putting big EXPERIMENTAL STUFF signs where needed.

This sounds interesting but I don't get it, can you elaborate about the 
"compiled JS" part?
Do you mean using our own JS compiler? At runtime?
