I have to say I really am not a big fan of needless overloading of the
languages operators like logical || and &&. Especially when you are
overloading them with functions that really don't correspond to the
original operators. What if I want to overload || with a function that
actually does correspond to logical or, like

Future<bool> operator||(const Future<T> &a, const Future<U> &b);
