Lake - Erlang RabbitMQ Streams Client

Hi!

Some of you may have read the RabbitMQ announcement of Streams.
To quote the announcement:

A RabbitMQ stream models an append-only log with non-destructive consuming
semantics. This means that – contrary to traditional queues in RabbitMQ –
consuming from a stream does not remove messages.

As far as I can tell, there are currently a Java and Go client to connect to RabbitMQ streams, but no Erlang or Elixir client. To take Streams for a spin, we thus wrote a simple Erlang library called lake. The library misses features such as handling clustering, but it works to give streams a try from Erlang and Elixir. See the repository for a usage example.

I hope somebody here finds lake useful!
