The run()/post() functionality of io_service cannot be moved out of
asio, because the implementation of it is tied to the underlying
asynchronous I/O mechanism. However, I'm sure you could distil a
"dispatcher" concept from it and reimplement this concept to provide a
range of different execution guarantees (e.g. FIFO, LIFO etc).
