Splitting streams

async-std doesn't provide a split() method on io handles. Instead, splitting a stream into a read and write half can be done like this:

fn main() {
extern crate async_std;
use async_std::{io, net::TcpStream};
async fn echo(stream: TcpStream) {
    let (reader, writer) = &mut (&stream, &stream);
    io::copy(reader, writer).await;
