Error detection is in my scope of work, however correction is not. That
is to say that I need to know when a transmission error has occurred
(common over slow radio links in a factory) but do not need to do anything
fancy to reconstruct the missing data, rather just request a re-transmit.

I've poured through the iostreams library quite a bit, and I love the
concept of buffered sources and sinks. I haven't quite figured out how to
tie iostreams into asio yet, but I'm working on it. ;)
