Clarify that these "continuations" are not continuations; they're
callbacks.

I'm aware that there's a body of practice that uses the term
"continuations" for these constructions, presumably because they can
be used (if used in a certain stylized way) to manually and painfully
implement what you might otherwise do with callcc. But in conventional
usage they aren't continuations or anything like continuations.

Note that I'm not going so far as to change the name or anything
(although I'd suggest that in the long run), just adding a
clarification.

If anyone wants to argue this you know where to find me :-)
