I think this library is an excellent idea and was looking for something
similar for quite a while. So +1 for people interested in this library.

I wanted to give it a try but unfortunately it does not compile on
windows. A little peeking around the code showed that there was some
fork() calls as well as some unix specific IPC (socketpair). Also, ASIOs
native_socket_type is used in some places. Is there any special reason
for this? You are already using asio and great deal of boost, why not go
all the way and be portable? I'd be glad to help here if I can.

Just out of curiosity - why does HTTP server spawn a worker process? Is
it merely 'the unix way of doing things' or does it improve performance
compared to keeping everything intraprocess?

As an interesting side note - while attempting to compile libzeep I
found that VS 9.0 compiler does not recognize spelled logical operators
('or', 'not' and 'and') as C++ keywords. Furthermore, passing macros
like or=|| on the VS command line causes internal compiler error.
Putting them inside code as #defines is OK for VS, but gcc (correctly)
refuses to preprocess this.
