If C++ is required, take a look at TProactor (terabit.com.au), which is
an improved implementation of the Proactor-pattern for the ACE-framework
(you need ACE and TProactor). the version of proactor that comes with
ACE is not recommended for production by ACE-people themselves
(according to the mailing list). In the tests TProactor has some code
that shows how you can get very close to what's called Protocol in
Twisted. But even the basic Proactor-framework gives you the
'ACE/TRB_ServiceHandler' class, which does basically the same as
'Protocol'. The ACE-pendant to Deferreds are called Futures in ACE.

I'd recommend to think about that a bit, if the decision is upon you ;)
