Hi Carlo,

    Yes, I have been considering how to expand the iostreams library to handle
different i/o models, and I believe standard library streams and stream buffers
won't be the appropriate abstractions in some cases. I'm also intrigued by the
idea of trying to achieve interoperability with Hugo Duncan's library.

    But right now I need a break :-) If the library is accepted, my focus in my
spare time will be to revise the library based on review comments. The
documentation, in particular, seems to need major work.

   Maybe in a couple of months I'll be ready to start thinking about
generalizations ....
