TBD at least for reading where overloads that lazily supply byte[] or 
buffer have been suggested to reduce memory usage when there are tens of 
thousands of virtual threads blocked reading from sockets. Writing is 
different as the bytes to send on the network will usually be 
accumulated in a byte[] or buffer before calling the API to write.
