I have not used the synchronous API at all. But section 3.1 of P1269R0
seems to make a good point about the lack of timeouts in synchronous
calls, doesn't it?
beast::basic_stream makes using timeouts in the async API way simpler,
but is the sync API really basically unusable because of the lack of
timeouts thing?
