I wonder if there is a more convenient and elegant way to do this.

Not exactly streaming, but I did something like in dsas.
I'm sending function as string to server to execute.
There is this code in tests.lua:
print("------- send function to execute (danger!) ------")
local ss = [[
-- from PIL p:33
local mi = 1 -- maximum index
local m = a[mi] -- maximum value
for i,val in ipairs(a) do
if val > m then
mi = i
m = val
return m, mi
local rc = S:call("testapp", "test3")
local m = S:result(0)
local mi = S:result(1)
print("m:" .. m .. " mi:" .. mi)
