Interface of the thespis actor model.

The interface of the thespis actor model (contains only traits). This defines the expected behavior for Addresses that can send to Actors, as well as the Handler trait and the Message trait.

There used to be a Mailbox trait, but it turns out that the mailbox is not depended on by any of the other components, so it's iplementation can be freely changed without requiring an interface.

The purpose for the split between interface and implementation is 2-fold:

  1. Libraries can expose an actor based interface without having to depend on an implementation. Consumers can then choose any implementation they want and everything will remain inter-operable.
  2. Each component can be individually replaced and composed if you need a different behavior then the reference implementation.

The reference implementation can be found in the thespis_impl crate.

Please check out the guide level documentation.
