Asio doesn't include any functionality to spawn threads (in a pool or
otherwise). However, the io_service class can be used to dispatch work
items in a thread pool using a combination of io_service::post() and
io_service::run(). It's the same mechanism that is used to dispatch
completion handlers for asynchronous operations.
