This looks quite similar to what is already in giallo. It adds some things
like a dispatch queue that are not currently in giallo.

Giallo also places the callbacks and the demultiplexer interface into
connection/connector/acceptor classes, providing (IMHO) a clean seperation
of responsabilities:

the socket class thus wraps the native socket functions into a common
providing platform independent error messages.

the native select and completion ports are also wrapped as objects, which
the proactor and reactor classes use (via a bridge class specified as a
to provide a consistent demultiplexer interface.

the connection/connector/acceptor manage the state (and lifetime) of the
socket, use a demultiplexer (proactor or reactor, interchangeably) and
provide the
user with completion callbacks.
