Hm, looks like you will need to write a parser for that.

AFAICT Rstreams refers to the stream conncections that are part of R
itself. Way back when these may have been an additional package.
Can you export in ascii from Breymann's library and then re-import? If so, it
would presumably be easier to use and debug and a lot faster to write.
Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
