ok, good to know :-) ...

the idea was to check if using an API like that shown (good even for
asynchronous de-registration of interest in some maybe long-running
task) using a generic Subscription object that could have many
implementations ...
I agree that for persistent tasks like scheduled job could not be so
useful, but maybe in other cases it is :-) .
I used this pattern some week ago during the "Principles of Reactive
Programming" amazing Course at Coursera, and find very useful, even
for not asynchronous tasks ... anyway, just as idea to discuss here.

Stay well.
