I have something like that already. But not very well thoughout. On
both posix aio and overlapped IO. The biggest problem is that opening
a file is *very slow*, and must be done synchronously within a thread

I want to make a proposal for SoC in boost. But I was thinking about
something else (a better bcp utility), I believe boost would benefit
from better tools in this moment. Maybe I could apply for both, and
boost chooses what (if any) is better for boost.
