HI, just to clarify, if i use through.emit in node v0.10, then I'm switching into old stream mode. So is it correct to say if I use something like event-stream.parse() in my pipeline (which uses through.emit()), then I'm going to break my pipeline down to old stream mode, where data comes eagerly? Im reading tons of json and want to make sure backpressure gets applied so I dont overrun my memory. Thanks!

hmm, I think a stream only goes to old mode when you assign a 'data' listener.
pipe can handle new and old, though.

also, through fully supports back pressure, it just does it the old way.

so you should be fine.
