    Do not confuse this with the Felix type of the procedure.

    This is a hack to get the procedural continuation
    currently executing, it is just the procedures
    C++ this pointer.
    fun current_continuation: unit -> cont = "this";
    The type of a Felix fthread or fibre, which is
    a container which holds a procedural continuation.
    _gc_pointer type fthread = "::flx::rtl::fthread_t*";
     Throw a continuation. This is unsafe. It should
     work from a top level procedure, or any function
     called by such a procedure, but may fail
     if thrown from a procedure called by a function.
     The library run and driver will catch the
     continuation and execute it instead of the
     current continuation. If the library run is used
     and the continuation being executed is down the
     C stack, the C stack will not have been correctly
     popped. Crudely, nested drivers should rethrow
     the exception until the C stack is in the correct
     state to execute the continuation, but there is no
     way to determine that at the moment.
      //$  Compiler generated runs ignore the exception,
     the library run catches it. Exceptions typically
     use a non-local goto, and they cannot pass across
     a function boundary.
