Document Future, at least a stub?


I could not find an issue about this, so I thought I would first ask here.

Various docstrings in Base and the standard libraries mention Future, which has no docs in the manual that I could find.

The module is documented as

The Future module implements future behavior of already existing functions, which will replace the current version in a future release of Julia.

which I guess is sufficient, but wouldn’t it make sense to have at least a small page for it in the manual? Otherwise, encountering Future in docstrings is somewhat confusing.


Yes, probably just an oversight.
