btw, i think that UnderscoreFilter
should be demoted from being a subclass of Stream,
since i found that it won't work with parser anyways.
Parser using an evil skip: -1, skip: -2
when parsing numbers, and it won't go well with filtered input.

Another alternative is to alter the parser to not use a position-able protocol,
only #next and #peek (and maybe skip:, but only with a positive offsets).

I think it would be good to assume for parser, that source stream may
not support positioning.
