Description

Proof of concept patch here:

https://github.com/clojure/core.async/pull/20/files

As discussed in IRC, this adds support for read-only and write-only "ports", which are constrained wrappers around channels. Write-only ports allow both put and close operations, were as read-only ports allow only take operations. Unsupported operations throw.

I'm open to suggestions for better names than <port and >port.
