    experimental CPS transformer for dotty

    Hmm, you can write direct-style code with monad: https://github.com/rssh/dotty-cps-async allows this, exists support libraries exist for near all well-known effect systems: https://github.com/rssh/cps-async-connect, so you can use async/await with IO/ZIO the same as with Future. Although in IO style, any operation that mutates state is async, it's hard to write code where you should place `await` near each line. And it looks like automatic coloring is a too radical change of concepts for most functional programmers. The option to allow using <- in the direct style may be more popular, but this requires changes to the scala core. Another question - are we need effective systems to be present in each program in industrial-style development? Here I agree that mostly no.
