Hi Bjorn,

Thanks for the quick reply.

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, though, I don't think
async_read_some() is going to work for me. Here is an excerpt from

  template <typename Handler>
  void async_read_some(implementation_type& impl,
      const null_buffers&, Handler handler)
    // ...
    start_op(impl, reactor::read_op, p.p, false, false);
    // ...

Notice the use of reactor::read_op. I've done a little more digging
through the Boost.Asio code, and it looks like, for this application, I
need to use reactor::except_op instead. Is there a simple class/function
that does this? Or will I have to implement it myself?
