I really dislike the ACE singleton interface in the
Reactor (and in some other classes), for the same reasons
already described. In particular, an application might use
a library that internally uses the Asio singleton demuxer
- now the application's use of the singleton demuxer might
conflict. This dislike is based on real-life use cases
(with ACE), btw. Please don't add a singleton demuxer
