Boost::Beast HTTP/S and WebSockets library
I'm opening this issue as a suggestion (is this the right way to do this? If not, please point me to a better place). You guys have probably already heard of Beast. Is there any chance that you would start using it in Wt for the HTTP/S functionality? It's a good library, so I'd like if you guys used it in Wt.
The library author is planning on proposing Beast for inclusion in the standard library once it's gotten enough usage experience through Boost. I'm trying to use it, but I'm new so I'm having trouble.

I've looked into Beast a little bit before, and I'm not sure what the benefit would be to use Beast over our current implementation. We already have an implementation of HTTP and WebSockets in Wt. I would prefer to look at what supporting HTTP/2 could give us.
