Subject: [Caml-list] string buffer as (in|out)_channel

Is there any way to do something similar to the C++ string stream stuff, 
where you treat strings (or Buffer.t's) as in_ or out_channels?  The Format 
module has a formatter for strings, but there doesn't seem to be a way to 
do it with Pervasives.  Something like:

val out_channel_of_buffer : Buffer.t -> out_channel
val in_channel_of_buffer : Buffer.t -> in_channel

and maybe _of_string versions too (probably necessary because you can't 
convert a string to a buffer for the in_channel), which fill up and don't 

It'd be very useful to be able to do this.
