I understand the need for a way to test whether some operations have
succeeded.  It is the specific proposed implementation that is
"un-C++".  As you observed, except the part of C library included
by reference, I cannot see any other component of the C++ standard
library that uses global flags.

Indeed :-)

The fundamental objection to the global flag, is less multithread
issue than a composition issue as I have pointed out earlier.
