Honestly, I think that the sync io could actually pave the way for replacing
the iostreams mess. I have actually used file io built on top of asio's sync
stream concepts. It actually works very nicely. I was actually able to read
directly from files using `boost::asio::read`. The only thing missing was a
Seekable concept for streams that can seek and report their position, which
important for implementing buffering.
