Agreed that it is essential for TCP.

What are you guys aiming at? Do you mean that boost
network / socket stream lib should handle TCP buffers
in our user space code?
A buffer may be needed for other reasons, but
"delays with Nagle, delayed ack and slow start all
combine-ing" and related problems are handled by the
