That implementation is my favorite, I really like the map, map_error, 
and_then, or_else additions ;-) .

A single Qt JNI call might fail in different places, e.g.:
auto str1 = QAndroidJniObject::callStaticObjectMethod("MyClass",

1. check if there is any pending exceptions on current JNI Env
2. check if the method signature is okay
3. check if the method call throw any exceptions

Using exceptions we can pinpoint what happened.

Imagine how hard will be without exceptions to pass as parameters more jni 
methods/fields results ...
