Description

It is sometimes useful to use buffered async channels and not worry about either pre-allocating their size, or the way sliding and dropping buffers can lose potentially critical data passing through the channel.

The attached patch adds support for clojure.core.async/unlimited-buffer and cljs.core.async/unlimited-buffer for this purpose.
