[concurrency-interest] How to subclass CompletableFuture?

I've found CompletableFuture impossible to extend. Mainly because all the
methods returns new instances of CompletableFuture. Where you probably want
to return new instances of your CompletableFutureSubClass.

So I think the proper way is using composition. However with all the
methods in CompletableStage it takes some determination.
