    It looks like you need to reach for a separate crate for that:

    This is not true; you can use the async resolver with other executors:

    You could run a local DNS server using something like . Or, you could install an NSS module to resolve names via the innernet client.

    My point is that "implementation that doesn't use unsafe" is not necessarily always slower than "implementation that does use unsafe". Often people assume that this is the case, and it isn't. tinyvec currently beats smallvec in more than a few benchmarks. Not all, but some. And this sometimes visible to users. The point is that if you want speed, you don't necessarily need to give up any safety at all. Most differences in performance are due to the amount of effort or expertise that has been spent on the codebase, not the amount of unsafe in it.
