+1 There is where it belongs architecturally IMHO, thanks for pointing 
this out, I wasn't aware.

Even better: prevent flushng alltogether by making a 
CocoonIntermediateStream that extends the output stream, and that does 
nothing on flush, and instead uses an Environment-protected method for 
flushing, so we can play safe.

At least we can see how it works.
Decoupling from the real stream gives us nice advantages it seems.

Running modes is a nice idea that we already had sometime back, and that 
now fortunately came back.
Basically with a single param it should be able to switch configurations.

Hence we can switch from a programmer env conf to a production one quite
