Thanks for that.
There has been a profusion of lightweight future object alternatives
in recent months. I think yours is like the fourth I've seen now,
each different but all similar in that they are much lighter weight
than anything being proposed by the Concurrency TS.
I fear, unfortunately, that WG21 is not as aware of these trends in
real world use cases as they should be. Certainly the presently
proposed continuable future is much fatter than the C++ 14 future,
and I think that is not welcome.
