Thanks, i already did :)
I could use deadline_timer to perform an asynchronous wait and have it
call a given method when the timer expires. But i still need a way to
interrupt the thread that is currently waiting for the tcp data, and
since that thread object would not be available in the callback method i
don't see how i could do that.
