Our networking API is quite complex, but it could be worse. It could be like 
Boost.Asio and what's being proposed to the C++ standard networking API.

Let me put it this way: *I* do not understand it.

So yeah, we should use new things that make our lives and our users' lives 
easier, like we've done with variadic templates. We do not have to use things 
that make it worse.
