Streams is for managing data stream processing. For example: getting new items from an RSS feed, filtering them, and publishing the remainder to an XMPP pubsub node. It’s fairly easy to write a program that does exactly that, of course; but Streams makes it easier and more accessible by providing a lot of the scaffolding, like the RSS polling and XMPP pubsub gateway, as well as a model for composing pluggable transformations and filters into processing pipelines.
