How about using ucontext.h on Unices (Linux/OSX) and WinFiber API on
Windows? I have working implementation of the latter already in the MSVC
branch. Are there any reasons to not use ucontext under Linux/OSX?

I'm sure you've seen this:

tldr; ucontext_t is really a bummer, performance-wise.

Maybe we look into Boost::Fiber? It is stack-ful and as long as we stick to the the defined API, we should not hit the issues we had in the past with the low-level stuff.
