There was a very good discussion about this some months ago, when someone
posted a layered design.

I think ideally a (network) stream API would thus be layered on top of asio.
In fact, if the low level 'transport protocol' is being made a policy, the
stream API could be parametrized to only depend on asio if async operations
are requested.
