Look, I can see (as in sqlpp11) that this won't work, and yield a
compiler error

foo f;;

but not the one that was in the prior E-Mail:

foo f;;;

Could you please explain how that works, since you claimed it does? We
were talking about a specifc example, so please explain it to me.

No, but who - except you - cares?

It is not a regular async-function and there is only one async-operation
- so why would I be forced to do that? It's a feature, that allows you
to use exactly one thing, the yield_context, with boost.asio. So it's
not a general anync-operation. If I implement the error reporting with
yield[ec] I'll break my interface style. And that would destroy part of
my error-handling.
