Unless I'm misunderstanding though, (you'd certainly know) from Jake's
description it sounds like it's the body  stream that gets used up/requires
cloning, which is why I suggested, just call it that.  If that's wrong then
readAs makes more sense to me.  I agree that it determines how you reason
about things.
