This general discussion about which approach to networking is superior is
very interesting (and useful for me personally), but I think we moved off
I think Chris (the author of asio) agreed that both approaches are valid,
and claimed he gives both of them appropriate attention.
So now, since I pointed to what I believe is a problem with the synchronous
interface in asio (socket dependency upon the demuxer), doesn't the critique
of synchronous approach sounds a little bit like:
"It is inferior anyway, so it's a goot thing that it's not clean" ?
Because nobody yet tried to convince me that socket dependency upon demuxer
(even if for synchronous IO only) is a good thing.
