+1. I tried this once in the past (with an earlier version of Boost)
but documentation on how to create from-scratch async operations was
very poor. It also required way too much boilerplate, from what I could
see. (And relies on using detail classes, which is usually a no-no for
external code.)

I haven't really been following the standards track but I'm hopeful that
the network/async/whatever TS ends up better documented. :)
