Several questions,

1) There is the (apparently) undocumented pipe operator . What does it do
exactly? It appears to push filters into a filtering_stream or
filtering_streambuf, but I am unsure.

2) Can we use it to write arbitrarily long chains such as:

source | input_filter | bidirectional_filter | output_filter | sink?

3) why the name bidirectional_filter when inputoutput_filter (or io_filter)
would be apparently more consistent with stl naming convention?

4) what is the url for the latest version and what is the status?
