Or, I can make promises shared as well, and then use .then.

when_any( f1, f2, f3 )
    future<size_t> f;
    promise<size_t> p(f);

    f1.then( [p](auto){ p.set_value(0); } );
    f2.then( [p](auto){ p.set_value(1); } );
    f3.then( [p](auto){ p.set_value(2); } );

    return f.then( []( future<size_t> index )
        return make_pair(index.get(), make_tuple(f1, f2, f3));

Something like that.

(I still don't need a mutex for the multiple set_value calls, by the way -
if(rn_++ == 0) { set the value; publish/notify; }.)
