Haven't finished my crude benchmark yet, but it seemed that
Boost.Context currently don't work with mingw-gcc. There must be come
work around but the codebase is really too complex... I can hardly
read inside boost headers. Maybe something about bjam as well.

However, one thing is quite definitive. Boost.Context's static-release
build is about 500KB on my machine, while libcoroutine is less than
10KB (If I didn't get anything wrong...), libcoroutine depends on a
basekit from the same author, but it turns out that only 3 files from
that library are needed. So I just simply copied them into

I've tried this one as well:

but after fixing some code in it to work with gcc 4.5, I still can't
quite get the idea of its API. Maybe libcoroutine is my best bet for
