An iterator, you mean. Hmm, because even a pull producer may not have
data on hand, you'd need to have a special object which means "I don't
have data, sorry" that the iterator can return. And you'd still need API
for push producers. OTOH it probably would be more efficient.

What we were thinking of doing is getting rid of the concept of
producers altogether and just exposing "buffers empty and writable" and
"buffers full" callback events similar to dataReceived or
