 Description   

Once a mix has been created, the go-loop inside mix will always recur. Obviously, input-channels can be unmixed and the output-channel could be closed, but the process would still never terminate.

Probably mixes should support something like (stop) to to make the mix-associated process garbage-collectable. Operations on a stopped mix should probably throw.

On 0.1.278 the mix process terminates when its output channel closes [1].

Yes, it has been fixed using the new return behavior of put!. (I can't find an option to close this issue)
