Dropping asio prefix should be thinked more carefully. While the
default implementation wouldnt clash with user code, user's
customization could collapse with its own free functions. Or even
worse, asio could find through ADL functions that wasnt made to be
allocation customization for asio.

With ADL it should be in the same namespace as the handlers, so if I
have a handler in some namespace it wouldnt call handler_allocate nor
handler_deallocate, IIRC.
