While I certainly intend it to be a comprehensive io library
eventually, at the moment it only does networking :)

I presume you are at least partially referring to iostreams
integration? Wrt iostreams support we should probably kick off
some discussion asap on exactly what form that should take. I'll
start a new thread for it.

That's the plan.

This is how I see things proceeding:
- I need to get the next version with the breaking interface
changes from the review out the door.
- A brief discussion on what features are in or out of a
proposal (although I have a fair idea of this already), based
on the new version.
- I knock together a rough draft proposal.
- With interested parties, the proposal goes through a process
of iterative modification and review.
I am putting as much as possible of my spare time (such as it
is) towards getting this next version out. I'm wary of putting a
date on it, but there are only a couple of major changes left on
my to-do list.
