A later posting proposed a gen_stream library:
which was a change in my thinking based on the earlier failed
the introduction of binary comprehensions (which I think were a
addition, although I'm a bit biased) and the flurry of discussions about
the Wide Finder project.
I have intended to resubmit with the addition of continuation-based
gen_streams, but haven't found the time to make the modifications yet.
All of these were geared to a specific problem rather than the general
issue of arbitrary code: the efficient handling of raw data
in the GB+ (ideally TB+) size so that databases can be replaced with
a big blob of binary data. Definitely a heavier task than general
