comment UML diagram for attributes that can have two different types
I did my best to answer given the information in the original question, but knowing more about the type (forex/rate) and notional would help, as I'm not a financial expert. Also, is the stock/bond distinction orthogonal to the forex/rate type, or are they all potential types of instrument?

Good point, @Gimby. I was not sure if the problem came from my implementation of an asynchronous server in cpp-netlib, or my use of curl in testing it, the interaction between the two, or something else. I did my best to phrase the question and prepare the example code in a way that would make it easy for others to spot the problem or try experiments I could not think of, but in doing so I perhaps deviated from the ideal SO question format. How would you recommend I phrase such a question in the future?

Thanks, @KenWhite. Yes, there is risk of loss of code if it is stored off-site. Some follow up questions: 1) How can I request that the help page be revised to make it clear that off-site code should be avoided? 2) Has the idea of SO itself hosting larger bodies of source code outside the question been floated? This would keep the questions more readable, though it could disincentivize people from creating minimal examples. 3) Your comment reads like a decent answer. Why isn't it one? ;)

@jxh, your suggestions led me to discover the source of the delay (curl was waiting for a 100 Continue) a resolution (add -H 'Expect:' to the command). Thanks so much!
