I don't know that anyone is interested in implementing it, but I would
be grateful if Gambit implemented delimited control, with continuation
marks and delimited parameter bindings. Then, the value of a parameter
potentially depends not just on "the" continuation, but on the list of
currently active continuation frames, which can grow and shrink
non-monotonically due to delimited control operators.

We could have an obfuscated-scheme contest, but if call/cc and macros are
allowed, that would be like using nuclear bombs to hunt bunnyrabbits...
