I don't think Andrzej was suggesting that.

I think the question is fair - if Boost.Spawn (though I'd really prefer
a more specific name) is C++11, how Boost.ASIO can switch to it while
still supporting C++03?

And if Boost.Spawn is updated to also support C++03, how is it different
from Boost.Coroutine?
