stream_start needs to be called for both (or all) the captures, while
init must be called just once...so I think keeping it here inside
s_stream and calling it just once will be okay too as that wouldn't need
refcounts..but yes I think I should keep them symmetrical for better
readability of code. What do you think is a better method?
