Applying an Action with a Continuation but without any Synchronization

This method is very similar to the method described in section Applying an Action Asynchronously without any Synchronization. The difference is that it allows the user to chain a sequence of asynchronous operations, while handing the (intermediate) results from one step to the next step in the chain. Where hpx::apply invokes a single function using 'fire and forget' semantics, hpx::apply_continue asynchronously triggers a chain of functions without the need for the execution flow 'to come back' to the invocation site. Each of the asynchronous functions can be executed on a different locality.
