Yes, these are true too. But Python 2.x has continuations (somewhat hidden,
but they're there, aka a non-LIFO control regime. No other language in
non-research use has that except Scheme.
Java, as befits a C-heritage language, doesn't even have closures
(well, inner classes are closures, I guess), much less continuations.
Pascal has closures but not continuations.
