Async-postgres: a runtime-independent, asynchronous PostgreSQL client


I was somewhat confused as to how this was runtime-independent when it didn't require the user to provide the tcp stream, but it appears that the answer is that if you use any runtime other than async-std, it will silently spawn the async-std executor in the background.

In that sense tokio-postgres is more runtime-independent as you can use it with any runtime by providing your own tcp stream (as your library does with async-std's tcp stream).

In my opinion, runtime-independency means running out of the box on any runtime. Of course anyone can provide runtime-relevant tcp stream to use tokio-postgres on specific runtime, but it's a little tedious and uncommon.
I think the solution of async-std is reasonable, and the performance is acceptable, as you can see this benchmark.
