I'm not sure this can be made to do what you want. When async_accept
returns, you do NOT have a valid connection. The connection will
actually be accepted long after async_accept returns. By "long after",
I mean any time span from milliseconds to weeks. You truly want to test
the "error" variable inside the lambda because it is highly likely that
whatever function originally called async_accept has already returned
and gone out of scope.
