> For doing encryption and signing right, it will be important to have a clean, minimal
stream interface.  axis2_stream is a bit crufty at the moment.
> Specifically, the get_type method is bogus: if you have an OO type (which stream should
be), then you shouldn't have a method returning a type-code for each implementation.  It only
seems to be used in axis2_http_transport_utils_on_data_request. I don't understand what that's
doing, but I'm fairly sure get_type is not the best way to it.
> I would also suggest having separate input and output streams (unless there are really
cases where you need to have a random access stream that can be both read and written).
> Having both get_char and read in an interface is a bad idea.  Have just read.  You can
implement get_char as a function on top of read.
> unget is  a bad idea on your fundamental stream type.  If you really need it, create
a lookahead_stream derived from stream that provides this additional operation and forwards
to an underlying regular stream.  Providing a peek method is better than unget (it's clear
what the semantics of multiple peeks are).
