Hmm, I wrote this a long time ago and haven't had reached the point yet 
to write the implementation. My goal is having a "light" version of a 
block to get access to its meta data (RemoteBlock) and I need access to 
the block as binary. Streams and Java is _not_ a strengh of mine and 
before I'm going to implement it, I will read (again) about streams to 
learn what's the best object to be returned. Any suggestions? ;-)
