I don't think there's any reason one couldn't write externs to make
point-to-point signal connections over a networ, using the subset of
threads that Windows supports.  I think that whether to use point-to-point
or broadcast is a separate question.  Also, most receivers of "streams" just
put out garbage when the signal degrades; a "netreceive~" object could be
coded to do the same if desired.
