Yes, but I still really feel that "guessing" and "optimizing" how efficiency 
will be achieved, before we've had this in the wild, is completely premature.

I know that this feels, right now, like a lazy programming style, which then 
becomes an inefficient run time execution.  But, do we really want to set, in 
stone, that foreach, can't return the stream?
