I would also vote for a class similar like that. However, i would move
the whole interface closer to expected in that case. e.g. I might want
to know what happened. Lets call this class checked<int>.

The behaviour should be like this: all operations between a checked<int>
and other integers should work independent of the state of the
checked<int> object. However the value of a checked<int> can only be
obtained using:

checked<int> myInt= ...
     int val = myInt.value();
}else if(myInt.error() == overflow){
     //some error handling here
     //some terminal error handling here
