I just had some classes that wrap a streambuf into a stream reviewed.
(I'm still working on the issues brought up in that review).

This reminds me: you guys are taking the approach of modifying streams;
is that a good idea? I seen a similar class (by Dietmar Kuehl) that
worked on the stream-buffer level. The stream classes aren't that
customizable, but the stream-buffer classes are.
