HashCryptStreams Stream filter concepts

The "Storages And Files" part of newObjects ActiveX Pack1 (AXPack1) lays a foundation over which many interesting techniques can be implemented. For example: You may already know the AXPack1's NetStreams component set which offers the SocketStream object. Once created and connected it can be used through SFStream in file-like manner. Another example is the built-in memory stream providing you with effective replacement for temporary files. Now, lets try to think of other kind of needs - filtering. 

The main question: What if you want to write to a file, a socket or another stream performing some kind of processing as part of the write operation? Well, shortly if you have a filter you can put between the stream and the code that uses it that filter can do the job still exposing the stream as such.
