In an attempt to divert attention away from the deteriorating relations
between Ireland and Germany, I wrote:

I see code like:
auto buffer=std::make_shared<std::unique_ptr&lt;path::value_type[]>>(new

Is this really what you intended? a shared_ptr<unique_ptr&lt;T[]> >? I would
have thought you'd want shared_ptr<T[]> with one allocation instead of two.

Also, I noticed (when trying to get AFIO standalone working with ASIO
standalone) that you check:

Don't you mean #if !defined(ASIO_STANDALONE)? Most people just define
ASIO_STANDALONE, not define it to a value like 1. What you have would be an
error during compilation in that case.
