But these don't belong to a streams library anway - at least I wouldn't know
how to support these I/O models without changing the stream interface.

It should be possible to use socket streams with and without exceptions -
then we come close to std::iostreams (and I think this is the goal of a
socket streams library). As there is no flag in std::iostreams to indicate
EWOULDBLOCK you use an existing one like failbit or introduce a new one eg.
