Utilities for streaming data over RMI

RMIIO is a library which makes it as simple as possible to stream large amounts of data using the RMI framework (or any RPC framework for that matter). Who needs this? Well, if you have ever needed to send a file from an RMI client to an RMI server, you have faced this problem. And, if you did manage to implement a basic solution, it probably threw an OutOfMemoryError the first time someone tried to send a 2GB file. Due to the design of RMI, this common and deceptively simple problem is actually quite difficult to solve in an efficient and robust manner.
