| I have a mild preference for io_services.

Having racked my brain to come up with a better idea than this or the
several other ideas,

I have strong preference for Beman's original suggestion:


I think it just hits the spot.

The pluralization is entirely unecessary as a 'service' can include many
elements - think 'service' at a restaurant.

And iostream is singular (but lacks the _ so ioservice would be consistent
but not nice?).

'Driver' is a daft name - and always has been IMO.

asio is short and snappy - does it stand for Async AND Sync Input Output?
But is the sync or not that important?

| Thanks for worrying about such quibbles - good names do help a library.

I agree that names are _really_ important.
