I agree. To put it bluntly I don't see any way asio can make it. But
there is good news as well. Part of being very restrictive about what
goes in 1.34 is the goal to have more frequent releases. The idea is
being strict will shorten the release cycle and that will reduce the
pressure for any specific feature to make a specific release.

So much for the theory.
