I have used it the other way, sending sensor data from an ESP8266 to a
Pd patch. Using UDP I was getting about 30% dropped packets, so I
switched to TCP and now I get less than 1% packet loss.
Since UDP is send and forget and WiFi is noisy, while TCP retries
until the packet gets through (mostly).
Since I have only one connection going, the threading stuff is irrelevant.
