I'm rather troubled by this.  It means that we'll have a "high level"
streams approach and a "bulk data" approach, presumably with different
data structures and APIs.  It means that a programmer coming to a
problem will have to choose between these two approaches, because one
doesn't meet performance targets.

It is the case that was cannot use the fairly new Java streaming
operations to handle bulk data accelerators?
