Well, I've beent trying to get in touch with Mike Karels to find out
more about his bstreams. From what I hear, and this is not from
the horse's mouth, he is working on something like SysV STREAMS.
Which would be used for network communication.

I'm interested in doing something like SysV STREAMS. And the reason
is that I find it easier to unify the tty & networking sub-systems
using STREAMS. Also, STREAMS makes things a little easier when you
want to add/replace different layers of functionality.

I've sent Mike Karels some e-mail. Hopefully he will respond.
