Good question, Bjorn.
Three main differences from iostreams from Asio:
 - formatting happens on the background thread which saves most of the
latency (for formatted output),
 - it will never make a kernel call on the calling thread except some
extreme contention (which saves latency again),
 - streams don't have to be associated with sockets.
