I can't really say how I see using POE in this application, but the 
moment you start thinking about doing async IO and running a poll loop 
you have hit an area where you can most likely write the entire thing in 

POE can be viewed as simply a framework built around a select() loop, 
but it doesn't have to be select() necessarally.
