It'll be interesting to see if this gets wide-scale adoption. I watched the
Google Tech Talk video and the presenter made the point that (paraphrasing)
"there hasn't been much development in systems languages in about 15 years"
... or maybe he said 10.

compile to real machine code.

Are there other machine-code-compiled languages that have coroutines and
garbage collection?
