The problem with the currently available and sometimes sold as "proper"
solutions in C++ is that they require a lot of boilerplate to be written,
so people (rightfully...) ignore or even actively refuse to use them.

As stated earlier, Rust's Result and question mark operator is a *really*
nice solution to that. It's almost no overhead to write and read compared
to the "no error checking" solution.

Now, if there were only a way to change something in C++ ...
