That's a false equivalence.

If the question is whether these should both exist:


Where the latter is a typedef/using to
std::net::strand<std::net::io_context::executor_type> ...

Then absolutely, yes, both of these should exist.

Convenience typedefs are not redundant, especially where they both save
typing and are logically easy to find.

Now, if std::net::strand wasn't templated on the executor type, then
that might change the answer.
