Not sure if it would be useful, and not sure if that is what I've been
trying to say/ask. Forget about my "stream processor" (*) suggestion, it is
irrelevant, and I prefer the implementation at the driver level anyway.
I was only wondering if there is a way to achieve a stream separation
without utilizing additional file descriptors. I think yes, but the driver
may end up too complex and difficult to maintain, etc. 
I would be very grateful if you implement this feature whichever way you
find fit :-).

(*) I did say that stream processor can do queuing, though. This would imply
some basic flow control vis-à-vis target PID, but not necessarily with
respect to remote peer. :-)
