client-store interface

Working on the range-issue in squid-3...

I think we would benefit from a extension to the store client interface,
to support notification of new data arriving (as opposed to the
completion of read requests). This would be used for:
1) multipart responses in the future, where the order of offset-length
data isn't predictable.
2) passing through range responses where the range processing fail for
whatever reason.

Without this, we'd need an ugly read-any-offset style API to be
reintroduced, like we had before Adrian straightened out the pipeline

The concept for use is:
if (don't know what offset we need)

Thoughts? Objections?
