> CountingInputStream is only partially synchronized.
> The count is not synchronized when it is updated in read operations, so is not guaranteed
to be published correctly
> The synchronization could be removed without loss of functionality.
> Not sure it makes sense to share a stream between threads anyway, as the underlying stream
is unlikely to be thread-safe.
> If only one thread reads the stream, then the count field could be made volatile.
> This would allow other threads to read the count safely.
