I have long thought that a coroutine facility was one of the more
unfortunate omissions from the ANSI Common Lisp spec.  ZetaLisp had one,
though the interface was a bit clunky ("stack groups").

If anyone does anything about this, I think it would be great if an
interface could be agreed upon by the maintainers of at least two or three
implementations, and written up as a CDR document.
