Streams API: piping

ReadableStream's pipeTo() is the standard way to compose readable and writable streams. It reads data from the ReadableStream and writes it to a WritableStream while respecting backpressure. pipeThrough() is a simple wrapper around pipeTo() that provides elegant syntax for chaining multiple streams.
