concurrent.futures.Future currently has the note:

> Future instances are created by Executor.submit() and should not be created directly except for testing.

That seems like a shame as futures are useful concurrency construct and having to rebuild them "by hand" seems like a waste.

What are the issues which prevent safely using futures outside of executors, and is there a way they could be fixed / lifted?
