The work to process data from an append() might be lengthy given the segment
parser algorithm and implementations might need to use I/O for buffering.

The append() algorithm should be modified to allow this work to be done
asynchronously. This would make append(Stream) follow the same model. Only one
pending append() should be allowed. appendcomplete or appenderror events should
be fired when complete.
