We need to reduce the fixed costs of setting up the pipeline so using streams are not unduly expensive compared to a for loop using an equivalent lambda. Fixed costs are especially noticeable for small data sizes e.g. < 10.
We are currently working on refactoring the internals to further reduce fixed costs.
