Which links to [1], a link that yields a 404. Via [2] and [3] I found
[4]. Is that the current documentation of Monad? In "Complexity
guarantees" some of the minimum complexities exceed their maximum
counterparts (e.g. "51 opcodes <= Value transport <= 32 opcodes").
What's that supposed to mean? What is the rationale behind citing
minimum complexities? And why do you measure opcodes instead of, say,

Since you mentioned monads were basically identical: why don't you
just use std::future?
