#' Get all futures in a container
#'
#' Gets all futures in an environment, a list, or a list environment
#' and returns an object of the same class (and dimensions).
#' Non-future elements are returned as is.
#'
#' @param x An environment, a list, or a list environment.
#' @param \dots Not used.
#'
#' @return An object of same type as `x` and with the same names
#' and/or dimensions, if set.
#'
#' @details
#' This function is useful for retrieve futures that were created via
#' future assignments (`%<-%`) and therefore stored as promises.
#' This function turns such promises into standard `Future`
#' objects.
