Is it hard to make wave support this?
I was thinking that with some guarantees from wave, wrt side-effects
in the context, it could be really useful.
The guarantees that I think would be needed are rollback-semantics in
face of exceptions and no side-effects *before* callbacks are called.
This would allow for backup of the context only if needed.
Depending on how much work would be necessary I could work on it too
for my SoC proposal, since it would easy a lot my work on the features
I would implement.
