At times I was scratching my head and wondering what was going on but
if you mean continuations that wouldn't resume due to a bug I do not
think so.

What I think would be nice would be to add a (web server control)
library making the most common web programming continuation operators
available for use in any framework built on top of (web server). This
would probably require installing a prompt in `run-server' somewhere,
(but that is not too expensive I think in the case it's never used?)
and having some policy on how the continuation table is to be managed.
One simple way would be to make use of a weak hashtable, although that
may not be ideal in all situations.
