The openssl support was contributed, but I take your point. However this
would be a good opportunity to rework the async support so that it
supports stuff like custom memory allocation etc (the current one

I suggest doing an initial implementation that doesn't need to modify
asio itself, and so simply provide new implementations of the
ssl::basic_context's Service template parameter and the ssl::stream's
Service template parameter. E.g.:

class schannel_context_service { ... };
class schannel_stream_service { ... };

typedef ssl::basic_context<schannel_context_service>

typedef ssl::stream<ip::tcp::socket, schannel_stream_service>

Once that's working we can look at merging it in as the default
implementation on Windows.

It would be much better to work against what's in CVS, if you can.
