Now that I'm back online (yay!), I'm going to rewrite the entire _get
routines for the PHP client. streams support was fixed in 4.3.3, and it
finally works like it's supposed to. I've been seeing some speed increases

the lights back on two weeks back, and blew out everything and anything that

I should have a test release of the streams version ready by the end of the
