Protothreads combine the low overhead with event-driven programming with the algorithmic clarity of threaded programming.

Sorry, I hadn't seen the rest of the comment thread before I posted the previous comment... I didn't realize you were already talking about the protothread implementation I recently published. (The Google Code and SourceForge code is identical; I'll probably make SourceForge refer to Google Code soon.)
