I think you're swimming against the tide here. We use a "2" suffix when
we're simply revving an API; we only use a new name when we've come up
with a name which is genuinely better. Since we don't normally tack
"_stream" onto the end of functions which operate on streams, this falls
into the first category.

He meant the next incompatible API change, which is (presumably) at 2.0.
