Talking about I/O what about that FLOW stuff then from Craig Letta?
Mark Guzdial is certainly praising FLOW, but it seems to me that it 
hasn't been picked up by the Squeakers. (Rumor has it that Craig is a 
bit of a moody fellow though).

As far as I understand it FLOW would solve a number of problems. It's 
sort of a rewrite of streams.
