I had missed N4032 actually, so thanks for that. I think Anthony
really nailed it in N4032, but equally I don't see any of it as

Besides, a variant of Executors (not Schedulers) is being implemented
into Boost.Thread, and I myself am happy to contribute an Executors
adapter for ASIO. I suspect something like Executors based on
std::packaged_task<> will turn up. I personally would doubt that the
template based approach of N4046 is viable for standardisation, if
you need that fine grained I think the newly approved resumable
functions are a better fit. I also think that strands are also better
done as resumables.
