I like your design, it seems to strike a good balance between
elegance and practicality. The only thing missing for the latter is a
deeper support for chunking. Of course, that would probably destroy some
of the elegance . I don't think that problem has been solved in any
of the enumerator/iteratee/pipe/wire/conduit libraries so far.
Did you consider adding some stream-splitting and merging pipes,
like those in the SCC package  or those described in the last
Monad.Reader issue ? Your arrow-like combinators seem well thought
out, but they don't go very far.
