A very good one (ASIO) is in the review queue, so sit tight!

I like the approach these guys are taking:

This project includes a C++ socket library, a library for doing async I/O
operations with IOStreams and another for database access. The designs
appear to be clean and simple.

The socket library doesn't seem to support non-blocking sockets or any sort
of I/O multiplexing on its own, so it is not nearly as complete as ASIO. As
far as sockets are concerned, layering on asynchronous operations at the
IOStreams level is a mistake IMHO. These concepts need to be supported at
the lowest levels of the library because some applications require them.

Looking forward to the ASIO review,
