FYI, I've just had a go at implementing your 'for eachConcurrently'  
API with support for nonlocal transfers, and although task  
cancellation and exception handling present their usual 'challenges',  
handling nonlocal transfers across threads turned out to be  
remarkably easy using UnmatchedTransfer :)

Nice work!
