That looks pretty elegant. It confirms (in my mind) that in async-io the site (function/port/ticket) of the receipt is different from where on the client the request originated. I don't know what the features/consequences are for the different implementation strategies - so I leave to Maarten and others to work out what the implementation should be. Thanks! Brett.
