This is really useful!

I guess the main things people will miss are:
- Fake Timer: it must be extreme common, to implement network timeouts
- Fake Resolver/Acceptor/Connect to Protocol::endpoint

But it also gives an example of how to implement fakes, so people
should be able to do so for those extra things.

I see you don't allocate read_op using the handler associated
allocator. Is this on purpose? I don't see any problem with this but I
also fail to see other, real, problems when looking at ASIO code and
was afraid of doing it myself.
