I'm unclear on why you objected and what you want me to do instead.
Please bear in mind that I have never read any Design Patterns books, and
have no idea what an "Asynchronous Completion Token" is.
I'm also extremely puzzled, since you seem to be objecting to the use of a
return value to communicate from a callee to a caller function. Any other
method *must* be more complicated, and I do believe in avoiding unnecessary
Just in case I'm not explaining myself well enough in words:
In the above, you wouldn't want me to make foo void, and find another way to
pass the value 8 back to main.... would you?
