Do run it through a spell checker as there are quite a few typos.
Otherwise, looks great, especially as you supplied a demonstration
prototype. I'd mention the demonstration prototype more prominently
actually, try to get its link to github higher up and put it in bold.

I'll be watching with close interest as you're basically implementing
a batch-capable superset of what I proposed as a monadic
continuations framework for AFIO. If you do well, I may even just
adapt your work into AFIO actually, it would save me a ton of work,
so I'm definitely hoping you get funding!

(BTW, just for reference, my next major functional chunk to be added
to AFIO is a batch hash engine which can use threads and SIMD, so I
can already push 1.2 cycle/byte SHA256 on an i7-3770K, but I believe
I can do much better again so it's awaiting a refactor)
