Forgot to add.

A futures/promises fits well with this.
A future is just an action (message send) which should be enqueued
after receiving result of some operation.
This means that future can be simply a special kind of context, which
activates after original send and then uses result to send new message
for it.
This means that futures can be seemly handled at VM level.

Best regards,
