  I am not sure to follow...  Are you saying that because the
implementation of InputStreamEntity, at some point, writes to an
output stream, then the interface is a push interface instead of
a pull interface?  Frankly, that sounds quite weird to me, but I
have maybe missed something.

  But the point is not rhetorical, and the goal is to be able to
avoid to bufferize the output of the subsystem that actually
generates the entity content (to an output stream,) what would
be required only to give an InputStream, or a String as content.
