comment how to tell the c++ concurrency runtime to reuse the previous thread for task continuations
@JerryCoffin While I generally agree with your point, I can see reasons that one would want that; thread creation may have arbitrary overhead depending on platform. Not being able to force the runtime to schedule subsequent tasks to the same thread makes it unusable for certain use cases.

comment Integrating multiple git users with Asana
There is an important difference. user.name and user.email are used locally to put information into the commits, which are then pushed. The config variables themselves are never seen by the server.

comment Why do future_statements in Python need to be placed before everything?
Exactly. Also, how would the effect of from __future__ import print_function be scoped if it was placed inside a function? Would it only affect that function? Or would the parser have to switch back to the non-print_function grammar when the function is completely parsed? These are questions whose answers introduce horrible complexity and readability issues.

comment How should I deal with mutexes in movable types in C++?
The question has a quirk: Shall the move operation itself also be thread-safe, or is it sufficient if other accesses to the object are thread safe?

comment modular arithematic-mod of huge numbers in c++
@chotabheem Well, you could also invest a few months of development to write it yourself. But yes, C++ only supports relatively small integers, 128 bit at most currently, I think.
