"Inferiority" is not the point here.
The reason asynchronous interface is given more attention is that it is the
one that is non-trivial. The real value of this library is the asynchronous
part. There is nothing special about synchronous operations, and they have
been implemented in similar ways in dozens of networking libraries.
