I would like to add more asynchronous event sources to asio, like:
- input events for mouse, keyboard and joystick ..
- window exposure, move, resize events in some generic form,
- generic "quit" events
- file alteration

With directFB/X11/Unix/Linux most of that can be done directly through
select or epoll.
But since reading the message and parsing events is mostly done
by a third party library, I would only need the reactor part for these.
Is this possible with asio?

According to msdn it seems to be possible to create so called event
objects for direct input devices. I am no win32 expert so I do not know
if one can combine that with completion ports?
