I apologize for my ignorance. Why is this important?

A process wants to push a message (some number of bytes, usually
ending in \n) into a stream_t. Who cares where the message
'dividers' are? Isn't that for some other script (like one which
parses logfiles) to deduce, or assume?

I'm surely missing some big concept here.

I don't understand. Can you explain your proposal in more detail?

(Also, it seems like this is a criticism/counter-proposal to part I
of the Chicago Plan. Is there no objection from anyone to part II?)
