I am, but the problem is a bit more complex than that. I see three
possibilities for handling the exit code:
The first two are possible with child() and the latter with system. The
preferred way for me is to use child, so you have a handle. So the
exception here is yield_context because using that with system seems
intuitive to me. I don't see how I could use this with child, because
you'd have to suspend the coroutine in on_success, which will lead to
possible errors if you put something behind it in the argument-list that
needs the on_success call. Therefore, it's restrictet to bp::system.
That's the main reason, so it's an exception, it does not try to be a
