Reading project: Ken Shan's continuations reading group. The 5th background paper uses C analogies, which is weird. Apparently this is a GNU C extension:
void p(void *x) {
    goto *x;  /* weird: dereferencing void* */

main() {
    p(&&L1);  /* weird: double-& operator. */
L1: exit();
}
It makes sense, though.
