How are you going to implement streams and streamable objects?

A VFS that can callback when the next portion of the data from a stream
became available locally? 

I can see use in this for example for multimedia filetypes. Perhaps
could a library like GStreamer eventually integrate with something like

Or Nautilus (or any filemanager) showing a running movie (not just the
first frame) in the preview-icon of a mpg-file without the need for
Nautilus to read the entire contents of the file first (causing huge
memory usage).
