I took a quick look into the lib and I've following questions:

- How does Boost.DataFlow support exchanging data in both directions between two components (duplex communication)?
Example: stack of network-protocols:

service_contract >>= serializer >>= encoder >>= protocol_1 >>= protocol_2 >>= transport (send data)
transport >>= protocol_2 >>= protocol_1 >>= encoder >>= deserializer >>= service_contract (receive data)

- If one consumer is connected to multiple producers, how can the consumer selectively disconnect from specific producers?

Contrary to some other posts -I find the syntax of ovelroaded operators not confusing:
>>= push sematic
=<< pull semantic

The pipe operator '|' could also be used in the parallel execution semantic.
