Interesting. I was recently working on something new that I was hoping
to use Asio for but kept running into unacceptably long lock delays
(~300ms). The code did make use of parallel jobs on supposedly
independent strands so this could have been the culprit.

I actually ended up abandoning Asio and rolling my own threadqueue (I
didn't want any of the socket-related stuff so this wasn't as big a job
as it sounds). Mine isn't fully-baked yet (and it's Windows-only for
the moment) and I'm not sure I'd want to show it off either, but on the
upside most of the guts are entirely lock-free (though not wait-free,
since it's based on Boost.LockFree's queue).
