    I am not totally sure if this relates to your question, perhaps one
of the ets authors could clarify, but I believe that if you do a
ets:match with a continuation while updates are performed that it
behaves similar to mnesia:dirty_next under the same circumstance i.e
undefined. I think that there is an internal hash that is altered upon
an updates. This alterations changes the internal structure in a way
that is incompatible with continuations. I am not sure if I am totally
on the mark here though.
