I'm also not sure symmetry is really as desirable a feature as people 
think. Basically all network code is asymmetric (e.g., the BSD socket 
model). _Requiring_ symmetry seems like a real mental burden when I 
think about how I would want to map things I already have experience 
with onto this API.
