Hello Ian, thank you for the response!

Oooh, MQTT5 :)  In my case I'm going to be doing everything in a single
thread with selects and/or polls.  I guess I'm kind-of in the camp of
having synchronization implemented in a way that it can be "compiled
out" or even swapped out (perhaps via C++ template parameter?)  Either way.

I'm not familiar with FreeRTS, Arduino or CC3200 and it's probably safe
to assume that support for many other OSes, architectures and OS-less
chips/boards will be desired by somebody at some point.  While I don't
want to go overboard trying to design the perfect scheme to mesh with
them all, I would at least like to be close.

This makes the most sense as there are a lot of dimensions here.

Yes, precisely.  Thank you!
