"modulo" in this sense means "excluding" -- that we're not considering the item. Continuations are described at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continuation. Implementing continuations on top of the CLR would be pretty challenging, and (as I understand it) they're not widely used in the Ruby community.

What are "modulo continuations"? I've never heard that term. I've done very little ruby work but am interested in the topic. I did a quick google and only things related to iron ruby came back when I entered modulo continuations.

IronRuby is targeting 1.8.6 compatibility (modulo continuations) with Ruby on Windows first. There are some Ruby 1.9 features which we have designed IronRuby to support in future versions. This will eventually happen, but 1.8.6 compat will need to happen first.
