Yeah, it would be better to use the chain_future call from async directly, but the problems are 1) it would make concurrent dependent on async and 2) if it were public, it would require users to instantiate futures, which they’re not supposed to do.

(I always wondered why was it private anyway)

So I submitted a pr to do this. This would add the .then(self, fn) method to concurrent.futures.Future. Thoughts?
