By the same approach, having scheme run on jvm (no call/cc or similar,
etc) should be impossible aswell, no? One can for example always
emulate the presence of a stack, and merely put objects that need to
be removed when stack unwinds on it.

language into another. The question is how gross and ugly the
translation is and how much of the target language's native features
you can use to handle similar features in the source language. -John]
