It has 2 exposed modules (vs 14), does not include TIFF or WAV
parsers, uses [] instead of ListLike, and discards StreamChunk in
favor of just "data Stream = Chunks [] | EOF". It has three
dependencies (base, bytestring, transformers) rather than roughly 20.

Currently mine probably has fewer built-in combinators, because it has
fewer everything, but if it's missing anything somebody uses I will be
happy to add it. Most of the functions available in Oleg's original
code (and thus in "iteratee") appear to be for instructive purposes,
rather than useful.
