You don't need to refer to state...combinators being a prime 
example. I would further argue that a lot of the success of the web is 
due to the lack of state.... and that many issues are caused by 
(poorly) adding state. There's also no reason why a SOAP invocation 
couldn't, in effect, return a continuation.
