May I suggest that you check out asio, a library I have developed for
network programming using a "modern" C++ style.

I have been thinking about similar ideas to the ones you raised in this
thread for quite a while now, and as I had a similar need to you, I
developed asio. I believe it addresses the issues you raise, or at
least provides a basis for doing so. The asio library currently
supports both windows and linux, is free for any use, and is also going
into production in a commercial system in about a month.

You can get asio from:

I have also put the generated documentation online at:

Feel free to ask if you have any questions. There's too much to say
about all the different stuff in asio to fit in this email :)
