Right now WebSockets only works with complete messages, there's no 
streaming support. I suspect that if we add streaming support to the 
protocol and the API, it'll be exposed as some sort of Stream object, 
which would then have a way to get the data out of it in chunked form, 
maybe a growing list of ArrayBuffers or something. I haven't looked at it 
in detail yet.

There would probably be some relationship to MediaStream, too; roc may 
have an opinion on this topic, as he has spoken about it before.
