[webkit-dev] Streams API

It looks like nobody has raised any concern against Streams API. We even 
got positive feedback from Anne. :)

I have two concerns:
1) You have many patches waiting for review. I think you need to get 
better communication channels with reviewers in order to iterate over 
your patches faster. It is unfortunate but getting complex patches 
reviewed in WebKit requires poking reviewers directly. Since you work on 
the network stack, I suggest asking Alexey (ap) and Pratik (psolanki) on 
IRC, they can help with reviews or suggest other reviewers.
2) Streams is a large spec and it touches platform code. Please be 
careful with stability, make more tests than reasonable and #ifdef 

I suggest the flag name "ENABLE_STREAMS_API", I find "ENABLE_STREAMS" a 
bit too generic.

If you open a meta bug, please send the bug number to the mailing list 
for reference.

Good luck :)
