I suspect that for things like streaming compression and encryption
APIs, in a couple of years we'll all agree that the right way to
do them will be as co-routines.

(Personally, nearly all of my recent use of these things has been
for relatively small data; a simple non-streaming API i.e. take a
span<byte> and return a vector<byte> would be perfect.)
