This brings up one of the bothersome aspects of asio interface, IMHO.
Functions like:

template<typename Endpoint>
void get_local_endpoint (Endpoint &endpoint)

make it difficult to use in the context of an initializer list.

typedef boost::asio::ipv4::tcp::endpoint tEndpoint;

some_class( ... )
: mSocketPtr( ... )
, mPort( mSocketPtr->get_local_endpoint().port() )

obviously fails to compile. Rather than

, mPort( mSocketPtr->local_endpoint_ref<tEndpoint>().port() )

Any reason this was not considered? The same goes for host and host
resolver's get_host_by_name.

Thanks, Jeff
