The API should just be the writestream API where it's used, independent of how it's being viewed by the second user who is reading the output printed on the transcript.

I agree on that :)

> It sounds like at the moment it's mixed and the user can also start reading from the transcript... that seems wrong since the data might have been sent over the wire; thus being gone and not available anymore in the transcript. Viewing the transcript is something totally different than writing to it.
