[racket-dev] [PATCH] Add multiple streams and a contract to stream-map

Adding multiple streams feature to stream-map makes it more in line
with its list counterpart.
There was some talk a while back about adding multiple streams to
stream-map but it ceased. I still think it's a good idea to add this

There were some challenges with the previous definition of stream-map
because of the expectation of returning multiple values, but as far as I
can see, and reading the mailing list, it has been dropped.

Also reading the mailing list, I saw a request for the use of contracts
instead of the previous error handling, so I added that.

There is also a pull request at github to add this feature.
