repeat with messages

Serial I/O is unfortunately missing messages. Are you thinking of sockets?
I almost always use send. When implementing “blocking” when a customer asks for it (as in a sockets-like implementation on iOS), I might use wait with messages or even wait for message, but that requires flags when I don’t want recursion.
With send, things can start and end in any order.
