Hi Glyph:

InlineCallbacks are neat! InlineCallbacks perform much of what I do with Stackless Python and Twisted. One of these days, I would like to run tests to compare the two. I suspect there is additional overhead (from what I recall, I see stuff in the code like unwinding stacks/checks for infinite recursion)

And a lot of the new Web APIs are conversational in nature! I think inlineCallbacks will grow in importance as web programmes move from mashups to orchestrations/choreographies.
