I do want to keep the callback handlers last for consistency,
but I'll add an overload of these functions that leaves out the
flags parameter.

Are the QoS settings configured using ioctl? My brief reading of
MSDN would indicate so on Windows. If this is the case, then a
new implementation of the IO_Control_Command concept could be
added for this, which can then be passed to
basic*socket::io_control. If you'd like to suggest what
interface it needs (or, even better, create an implementation!)
I'll look at adding it. BTW, is this an OS-specific thing?
