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.
