Great! Here are some refinement/enhancement ideas:

1. Asynchronous versions of basic_host_resolver::get_host_by_name() and

2. IPv6 support.

3. SSL/TLS support via OpenSSL would be great. Datagram-level security
using DTLS would be even greater, although not so important (OpenSSL
0.9.8 has DTLS support).

Contrary to previous posters, I don't think you have to bother with HTTP
support or examples - it's outside of the scope of this library, and
should be implemented separately (on top of it) by another library.
