[webkit-dev] Feature Proposal: Implement Stream and StreamReader

This API seems like it's in an inconsistent state with the other web
platform features going on right now.

ex. StreamBuilder sounds like BlobBuilder, and we recently killed that for
a constructor for Blob.

It's a bit concerning that we're going to add this feature, and then
perhaps change it, and then need to go through the "how long does it take
to deprecate features" cycle again.

What's the plan for turning this on?
