Cant offer any tips but can support your interest. A question though;

* have you looked at the state-machine work done by Andreas Huber

I ask because you mention "strictly asynch". Or are you hoping to
integrate "boost transparent marshalling" with your own async event

If I am hearing you right then I think the combination of serialization and
state-machine would be interesting to you. Sadly no-one else is pushing
for this integration (BTW dont know of anything precluding it ;-)

And we are talking about WIP.

Would be interested in clarification of "function call or in-line equivalent
[..] zero friction". Thats because of some work I'm doing on a transparent
marshalling lib.
