Ports and streams

    ... A different metaphor is that a "port" is a sort of a cursor or a 
    marker which moves along a sequence (stream).  Well, what moves up 
    and down a sequence or stream? How about "raft"?  ...

I also dislike "port" for much the same reasons as Jonathan presented.
I support the proposal for the new term "raft".
