How? How can I turn a sequence of calls valid when the object stays the
same and each call is valid?

I'm sorry, but I think you still do not understand how that works.

Two things can hapen:

1. The process launches successfully
    --> No error in ec, the coroutine is suspended the wait-handle might
fail, which is not captured (but could be with yield[ec_yield])
2. The process does not launch
    --> ec is set, the couroutine is NOT suspended and nor error can
occur since the code does not wait for the handle (obviously, since
there is none) so yield does nothing.

system(yield) does not launch, but execute asynchronously, i.e. it
suspends after successful launch.
