I'm confused by the request for a standalone version.
The spawned fibers must be scheduled for execution. boost.fiber does this
without the need of boost.asio.
boost.spawn itself relies on boost::asio's io_context (demultiplexer, event
scheduler) and the async result/handler framework.

Yes, I had a commit that has been reverted because of dependency cycles
between the boost libs.

boost.context must be considered as a foundation library for other
high-level constructs (like boost.coroutine2 or boost.fiber).

I think this is a misunderstanding of what boost.spawn is intended...
