T streams are made up from (or are higher level abstractions of) T
channels. Channels are implemented in a machine-dependent way,
whereas streams are machine-independent.
In the interest of accuracy I'd like to say that this is only true of
streams returned by OPEN or MAYBE-OPEN. Other kinds of streams don't
necessarily deal with files or "channels" at all.
