Perhaps this interface, being request driven, is not appropriate for
streaming anyway.  I am not sure.  It would probably have to be
attempted to really know.

Such an example is quite a bit of work, though.  Probably best to just
describe things such that another worker context is possible, but not
try to predict which ones might be needed.  We can cross that bridge
when someone actually gets there.
