To do it most efficiently, both read and write buffers are needed,
since there should be at least two concurrent asynchronous reads and
writes. I don't think that is a major problem though --- buffers can
be used in almost all.

In addition to the asynchronous/non-blocking socket system, it would be
useful to provide a blocking socket system. This could be have a
streambuf interface.
