It would be interesting to hear how other things associated to higher order programming translate over. For instance JIT (code generation), garbage collection, or calls to native functions with arbitrary number of arguments (FFI).

One characteristic of greenlets have been that they’ve been proposed to be lightweight enough to allow thousands of them exist simultaneously. Even with hardware support, is that possible?

And what does the abbreviation NYF stand for? Is it an abbreviation of something in the first place? I didn’t find description for it.
