I must object to this. Firstly, I use raise-continuable all the time in
various things that I do, and most of the exception systems that I have
seen in Scheme have some equivalent form to this form. Moreover, the
distinction between raise and raise-continuable is one that I have found
useful in practice.

I agree.
