What do you think of STREAMS?

Now that there is a GPL'ed STREAMS package available (albeit for
2.0.29) which is being actively maintained, isn't it time for STREAMS to
be integrated into the base system? I seem to remember Linus objecting
to this but can remember why - heck, if it is just a compile time
option, or even better a loadable module why should Linux be deprived of
such a nice framework?
