Agreed, and as I noted there's other components of POCO
that are not (yet) in Boost (in particular, XML parsers).
So what about someone submitting a "service" library for
Boost? (I'm not sure what the definition of a service is -
I'm a little bit familiar with Windows services, and the
same for Unix daemons, but not sure what the higher-level
abstraction for both would be, since the details of both
OS facilities have some significant differences.)
