I think this is going too far. If you want to chain jobs, we need a more 
complex job tracker. That's what ThreadWeaver is trying to do. But we need to 
solve a simpler problem first.

And besides, you can always do:

QFutureWatcher<T> w = runFunction(...);
w.connect(&QFutureWatcher<T>::finished, []() { other function goes here });
w.connect(&QFutureWatcher<T>::finished, w, &QObject::deleteLater);
