No, that was not my point. If you use a socket from multiple threads and
read data from it, socket blocks waiting for input. My point was, that this
blocking wait is recognized by boost::thread lib as a valid interruption
point. And my suggestion would be to state in the docs of Asio that
synchronous wait operation is a valid interruption point for boost::thread.
Sorry for misleading words. Therefore interrupting the thread should
interrupt the synchronous wait.
