Also I'm concerned about how slow this is compared to Actix. Do you think .5 will raise this quite a bit? Currently .Net Core is a much faster option...

I’m really not sure. Part of my roadmap for this series includes benchmarking my solution against an equivalent FastAPI app. The performance bottleneck for most applications I deal with is database I/O. I assume being able to make multiple requests using async will speed that along, but we’ll have to see 😊
