this summer I had the chance to work with the streamin/streamout modules,
and was very impressed by your work. It's good to know you are improving
them, and I have a suggestion (or two):

1) can you deal with endianness problems too? :) this way, it would be
   possible to port these modules to other systems (yes I know - I am
   a linux-only person too - but still, I like to *talk* to other musicians
   even if they use impaired systems :)

2) can we sort of separate the protocol aspects from the networking
   layer vehicle (the network implementation) - this way, it should be
   able to implement clients/servers on different architectures

bravo again
