    You can also mix them a bit. The library tungstenite is implemented like this, and allows async-tungstenite to reuse the same logic but in a non-blocking manner. You have the API of the second option, but if a write call returns WouldBlock, you return to the caller and allow them to continue when the buffer is flushed. This can get complicated saving state though (e.g. whether it's currently doing authentication, uploading a file, etc.), but see my note below about Rust's async/await.

    Heh, I was worried a heim maintainer would see that. Looking at the comparison page provided by heim, it seems like the feature I was missing was probably support for gathering temperature data. Though digging into the documentation some more, assuming I'm interpreting it correctly, it looks like temperature is actually supported, contrary to what the comparison page says. Maybe support was added recently, or that comparison page is just out of date?

    heim can do that for *nix systems (Linux, macOS, etc) and Windows support being implemented right now.
