First crack at a Streams proposal

I think a large part of the confusion here is that when Tab says "streams" he really means "observables" or "signals." As you point out, this would be completely inappropriate as a stream API, as it does indeed ignore many of the lessons Node learned. Surprisingly, it doesn't seem to draw on any of the existing observable or signal APIs that I've seen either, instead being some entirely new hybrid of promises and the nascent monads-in-JS movement.

Node.js has multiple iterations on Streams, and those were made in the hope to make them better. It's hard and has been an ongoing effort to make it perfect.
