IIRC, we agreed that the stream rescuing will be done based on port
availability, so the suspend state and cause will not be considered.
FWIW, I'm OK with using any of UNAVAILABLE, APPLICATION or some new
suspend cause in the pipe source. I'd like to some day change the
suspend system that the causes are identified by strings (in a hashmap)
instead of enumeration values so that we don't have to pretend having
some generic suspend causes when in reality each of them tends to be
very specific to a particular piece of code.
