std.stream and std.stdio are both stream based - they just use different stream APIs. But
I am made to wonder why the wrapper for C FILE structures isn't implemented in terms of
the std.stream API.
I suppose if there's any such thing as non-stream-based I/O, it would be something like
std.file.read/write or memory-mapped files. Though even these might be internally
implemented in a stream-based way.
