ASIO has already been extended in this way in proposed Boost.AFIO,
currently in the peer review queue. AFIO does *not* replicate the
syntactic convenience sugar though, so you'll have to do more typing
and binding.

AFIO *has* been intentionally designed to be extended later however
with the right metaprogramming once more solidity emerges at WG21. To
be honest I'm also hoping to reuse Vicente's additions implementing
then() to Boost.Thread rather than duplicating identical
metaprogramming machinery. That said, I may go for a "partial then()"
as early as next week.

The work I intend to do to AFIO next week is preparation for
including coroutines support.
