So, after further consideration, i.e. writing an example, I decided to
add `async_system` and remove system(yield_context) in favor of it.
Now integrating async_result into system, would've been pure horror,
which is why I rejected that, but that actually made my yield_context
implementation look unecessary complicated.
So you will have a function `async_system(io_service& ios, Exithandler
&& handler, Args...args);` where args are the usual properties and the
return value will be obtained from async_result.
That seems to be the better approach in general. I'll have it documented
sometime next week.
