Yes, it is. Here is an article on CodeProject with a WinSock class that's modelled after the MFC CAsyncSocket class. Note that it uses straight WinSock code and is NOT based off the CAsyncSocket class, but it DOES use some MFC classes, such as CString.

It's not very hard to replace those MFC classes with STL or equivalent.

One thing to note: there is a bug in his code that causes SOCK 5 authentication to fail. There is a simple fix, and it's noted in this comment.
