 * The detached_t class is used to indicate that an asynchronous operation is
 * detached. That is, there is no completion handler waiting for the
 * operation's result. A detached_t object may be passed as a handler to an
 * asynchronous operation, typically using the special value
 * @c boost::asio::detached. For example:

 * @code my_socket.async_send(my_buffer, boost::asio::detached);
 * @endcode
