* This service read/writes a stream on a background thread.
* Note: instead of using this interface, probably you want to use
* NS_MakeAsyncNonBlockingInputStream.
* Use this service to transform any blocking stream (e.g., file stream)
* into a fully asynchronous stream that can be read/written without
* blocking the main thread.
