Creates an already-accepted future using the "resolve" algorithm,
which is the same magic that happens to the return value of a .then()
callback (if it's a future, it adopts the state; otherwise, it accepts
with the value).

In other words, "If this is a future, use it; otherwise, make me a
future for it".
