Options for passing multiple data down a promise chain
View promise_chains.js
// Promises can only resolve (return) a single value
// Sometimes, you want to collect multiple values as you progress through a promise chain
// e.g. Customer, Product, Basket, Payment Details
// I can only think of three options for handling this type of scenario (below)
// NB: Assume that FOO, BAR & BAZ are the result of some complex action (DB query etc.)
// What are the Pro's & Cons?
// Are there others?
