The default executor for asynchronous tasks is either
ForkJoinPool.commonPool() or one that creates a new platform thread per
task if the JVM is restricted to a single logical cpu. Since
CompletableFuture is commonly used with I/O, it is easy to accidentally
block all of the common pool's threads. In the future, is this default
likely to change to use virtual threads?
