I've been very pleased with your coroutine library for some time. I liked
the complete documentation. I aways wondered why it wasn't reviewed
and accepted into boost. For my own purposes I made a couple of
tweaks which made it header only - when helped me a lot.

I looked over the documentation of this library. My question is: what is the
relationship between this library and your coroutine library. Would this
be a lower level component of the coroutine library. What are the future
plans for the coroutine library - if any. I had presumed you just lost
