I haven't looked over your library at all yet, but I have bumped into
the problem of trying to integrate application code with an
inaccessible main loop.

Instead of providing your own main loop, you might consider using an
Asio io_service as your main event loop, and exposing (a subset of)
its API to your own library consumers. That would give you a certain
level of extensibility right out of the box.
