I would suggest dropping the name 'stream' completely, or at least
adding an adjective. There are several things named streams, and these
fusion streams are not the most natural of them. Calling them 'streams'
will only confuse people.
Also, this module feels like an 'internal' module to me. Perhaps
poluting the Data. or Control. hierarchy with it is not a good idea. It
really belongs in some sort of 'Optimization.' or 'Internal.' hierarchy.
