Mainly for simplicity of the first implementation and because that seems to
start overlapping a lot with Boost.Asio territory.

Once the initial implementation is working that would be high on the list
of new features ;)

My intention for implementation targets are linux and windows since I have
some experience with those platforms. Under Windows I intend to use the
Named Pipe feature so your input would be invaluable Edward.

For the unix side I've determined that the most compatible (feature and
semantics-wise) mechanism would be Unix domain sockets so it should be
fairly trivial to port to OS X and other *nix like platforms (if anything
is needed to port it at all). I'll be able to test it personally under
Linux, Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.7
