Both are $0 down on T-Mobile

Just need something to last until the next Nexus phone this Fall

Quite aware that the M8 has much better hardware, but I like to mess around with my phones (rooting, dual-booting OSes, daily flashing)

Any suggestions?

I would check the M8 and Nexus 5 Android Development threads to see what ROMs are available.

Most of the devices have a ROM list that is updated almost daily.

I have the Nexus 5 and if I had to choose today, I would pick the HTC because of the MicroSD slot (I don't ALWAYS have a data network to stream from).

Nexus 5 is manufactured by LG, but the official... producer, distributor is Google. So, as in the case of previous Nexus phones, the support will be available for longer time. M8 is totally new phone with fantastic look and camera. Unfortunately, none of those phone are water- and dustproof.

You can also take M8, then sell it and buy Nexus on e-Bay. M8 is still a bit expensive, so you will gain some money :P
