Most of all, I want to get rid of the Trio dependency. I'm aware that
this change could break some ancient platforms but I'm willing to help
with fixes in a timely manner.

If you think the change is too dangerous then I can revert it. But at
one point, we should discuss how to handle compatibility with 20+ year
old platforms.

My opinion is that old hardware deserves old software.  There comes a
point where even the compilers no longer support a target.

That said, Trio still seems to be supported. The latest release is 1.16
from 2014:

Upgrading our copy of the Trio code should fix some compiler warnings,
but personally I'd prefer not having to deal with third party code at all.

The other option is to take over the trio project and keep it updated to
serve this project.  This way you control the dependent library code.
