Native Java Continuations "...all of these things can be done without continuations in the JVM, they just get more convenient when you do have them. In the small is where the ideas really shine -- coroutines, generators, certain types of graph traversals, error recovery (in languages which support continuations you get java's try/catch being a trivial thing to implement, and you get other niceties like "try ... catch { retry two times; fail } finally ... end"."

Hmm, graph traversal.
