Um. It's much more typical to instantiate a coroutine, passing it the code
you want to run. That can be an object method, run() or whatever: use
boost::bind() to bind the object pointer/reference to the method, along
with any other parameters you want to pass it initially.

I would have to let Oliver respond to the question about whether it's
acceptable to derive from the coroutine template. But I claim that it will
perplex future maintainers.
