I'll have a think about how this might work. Maybe it's as
simple as having the expires_at()/expires_from_now() setters
always cancel associated timers (although that may have a
performance cost), and have them return the number cancelled (as
cancel() does).

I only know a little about SCTP, so contributions are welcome :)
I'm guessing it would take the form of an sctp class (similar to
asio::ipv4::tcp), sctp::endpoint, and a new seqpacket_socket
