AFRP uses continuations under the hood, so you can view webwire as
continuation-based to some extent. But out of interest, why are you
wary? This is highly experimental work, and I see some problems coming:
* Lower performance, though that can be fixed. Right now I'm getting
up to about 8000 requests per second using apachebench with -n 10000
and -c 1000, which is probably not enough for high volume sites.
* Sessions are a runtime-only phenomenon. This is a more serious
problem, for which I don't currently have a general solution, though
for most applications specialized solutions can be written.
* FRP and netwire in particular have a steep learning curve.
If you see any further potential problems, I'd be very grateful, if
you'd let me know.
