Sorry Matthias for being flippant, but in my mind, that's tantamount to saying that a Turing machine would take you far. It's not. Read "On the expressive power of programming languages." I actually have at least one application (PGG) which is really dependent upon CALL/CC, but beside that, I often just plain *want* to use CALL/CC even when I could, in principle, with some more thought, use something else. Anyway, this discussion really belongs some other place. Yes, but where else do serious people discuss such a question?
