There's another solution that we spit-balled, it is this:

    using const_buffer = std::pair<void const*, std::size_t>;
    using mutable_buffer = std::pair<void*, std::size_t>;

Now ConvertibleToConstBuffer just means convertible to std::pair<void
const*, std::size_t> which is a plain std:: type. This also would
require a paper to change Networking-TS.

What do you think?
