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
This means that futures can be seemly handled at VM level.
