/**
 * Asynchronous operations may need to allocate temporary objects. Since
 * asynchronous operations have a handler function object, these temporary
 * objects can be said to be associated with the handler.
 *
 * Implement asio_handler_allocate and asio_handler_deallocate for your own
 * handlers to provide custom allocation for these temporary objects.
 *
 * The default implementation of these allocation hooks uses <tt>::operator
 * new</tt> and <tt>::operator delete</tt>.
 *
 * @note All temporary objects associated with a handler will be deallocated
 * before the upcall to the handler is performed. This allows the same memory to
 * be reused for a subsequent asynchronous operation initiated by the handler.
 *
 * @par Example
 * @code
 * class my_handler;
 *
 * void* asio_handler_allocate(std::size_t size, my_handler* context)
 * {
 *   return ::operator new(size);
 * }
 *
 * void asio_handler_deallocate(void* pointer, std::size_t size,
 *     my_handler* context)
 * {
 *   ::operator delete(pointer);
 * }
