I recommend to ACCEPT Beast into Boost.
> - What is your evaluation of the design?
I quite like it. I appreciate the limited, low-level scope. The
"design choices" page is convincing to me, although I am relatively
unfamiliar with the domain.
> - What is your evaluation of the implementation?
It's large, so I randomly poked around the code for about an hour. I
have no issues to raise, although I found it interesting that Beast
implements SHA1 on its own, and also contains a complete header-only
port of zlib.
> - What is your evaluation of the documentation?
I'm highly impressed. The documenation is excellent.
> - What is your evaluation of the potential usefulness of the library?
Very useful. I'm excited about Beast, and I think its acceptance would
add significant value to Boost.

I did not try to use the library.

One hour reading docs and one hour reading code.
> - Are you knowledgeable about the problem domain?
No. I rarely write code that deals with HTTP directly, and I've never used ASIO.
