The name :-)
I am unsure of some of the entries in the decision list. Runtime switchable
possibly the callback technique (in Michel's post) for async results. But I
cant give you
anything solid against; anything I might prefer I think can be built on top
of the interface
that Michel presented. The pain experienced around mode-switching in Winsock
probably just baggage.
But the name (network library)?
