This is a misunderstanding: there is no call/pc.  Until relatively
recently, there was no good understanding of the relationships between
the various design choices (shift/reset, prompt/control, cupto, etc).

Now it seems clear (to me, anyway) that the -F- operator is the
fundamental one.  See the first part of

Indeed, but it's not too early to start spreading the gospel of
delimited continuations ;-)
