As long as we remember that we want _delimited_ dynamic binding,
because dynamic bindings and partial continuations don't work
together. (And we always have partial (and full) continuations, given
that we have thisContext.)

I have promised to look into how DynamicBinding and partial
continuations act (in particular, whether DynamicBinding counts as
delimited dynamic binding), and I apologise for my lack of time spent
on the matter. It's something for which I still need to make time.
