Using ServiceStack* together with Reactive Extensions** to reduce the latency before the client can start processing the elements of an array response. The service sends elements to the client as soon as they become available through the magic of AsyncServiceBase, IStreamWriter, IObservable<T>.ToEnumerable() and careful use of WriteLine() and Fl…

This is cool. Did you ever figure out a less fragile way to identify elements other than new lines?
