[racket] Example of using a struct as a port

I'm looking for an example of treating a struct like a port, which appears
to be possible:

Apparently, this is a lot easier that using make-custom-port.   What I
would like to do is be able to declare a struct, set it's prop:input-port
property, pass an instance of struct to a port procedure, like (read-bytes
string-that-acts-like-port), and have the bytes sent to the read-bytes
actually contain bytes that were stored in the fields of the struct itself.
 Is that possible, and is that the reason why one would treat a struct like
a port?

Thanks in advance for any examples,
