More ideas:
- USB library (integrated with asio?)
- COM port library (integrated with asio?)
- Hardware random number generator (integate with Boost.Random!)
- Pipes and named pipes library (integrated with asio? integrated with
- Protocols implementation based on asio (SNMP for example )
- Simple key-value reading and storing (or just allow program options
to write options into config file)
- Full text search
- Near Duplicate Detection (shingling)

Let's be honest, this ideas require much more than 3 months of coding:

This is already implemented in Boost.PropertyTree (and there is a
Spirit implementation in Spirits examples)
