I suspect that the original poster was refering to Continuations
as in:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continuation
or
http://www.intertwingly.net/blog/2005/04/13/Continuations-for-Curmudgeons


It seems that Dolphin will contain a new invoke-[something] bytecode 
that is supposed
to help implementation of dynamic languages; I don't know any details of 
the semantics yet, but
having continuations or CPS supported by the JVM/a bytecode would 
probably be nice.
