Actually, I like this idea. I've modified my benchmark accordingly and
it shows nearly identical performance as the current `std::error_code`:

Experimental test: 253654 usec, 394237820.022550 tests per second
Experimental2 test: 46353 usec, 2157357668.327832 tests per second
std test: 45981 usec, 2174811335.116679 tests per second
