concurrency friendly cps-style dispatch

This is a new concurrency model, an extension of Parrot's Continuation Passing Style architecture. It takes advantage of the encapsulated dispatch Parrot's CPS provides to implement more advanced concurrency features. Some inspiration for this comes from Erlang's Actor model, some from thread-level speculation.

This feature is very speculative at the moment, a concrete specification will need to be developed as part of the roadmap task.

This ticket is pretty vague. Is there any more infomation to be had about this new architecture? Any papers to be read or prior art to examine?

This is a good goal, considering where we are heading in the long-term. However, this ticket is too vague to really be any good. What we should do is start putting together a PDD or some other outline document where we can start putting ideas down and figuring out what we want. A ticket like this isn't really the way to keep track of these ideas.

I'm closing this ticket.
