Thanks. I suspect I was referring to map and bind. future<T>::cath_error
must return T or future<T>. I recognize that it is not clear in the N4048.

Initially catch_error() was called recover(). It can be used to recover
from errors and then the function returns a value or a future ready with
a value and also to change the reported error, in this case the function
should return future<T> ready with an exception.
