I’m just told off-list that this is not true. The lowest-level TLS API, Secure Transport, can be used in a non-blocking mode. Things like CFSocketStream and NSURLSession, actually use this facility to provide their async abstractions.

So I guess everything will be fine. Still the TLS API draft for Swift should state it as an explicit goal that it can be used in a non-blocking fashion.
