Hi Mark,

Indeed, this is something that is frequently asked about.  I probably
wouldn't use it myself, but it looks like you've done a good job on it.
Here is some feedback:

1.  I'd suggest a more descriptive name, especially if you plan to
publish it to MELPA.  org-pop doesn't seem to convey anything about what
it does.  :)

2.  In the code, I saw you comment about cl-flet, and I see you using
fset and unwind-protect in the org-pop-with-continuations macro.
Instead, use cl-letf with symbol-function, like:

  (cl-letf* (((symbol-function 'foo)
             ((symbol-function 'bar)
              (lambda ()
