You are right. I perform little experiment. Fuel reading is 60% faster than

Smalltalk garbageCollect; garbageCollect.
r1 := [FileLocator imageDirectory / 'test.bmp' readStreamDo: [ :s |
s binary.
fromBMP := BMPReadWriter formFromStream: s]] benchFor: 2 seconds.

Smalltalk garbageCollect; garbageCollect.
r2:=[FileLocator imageDirectory / 'test.fuel' readStreamDo: [ :s |
s binary.
fromFuel := (FLMaterializer newDefault materializeFrom: s) root]] benchFor:
2 seconds.

{ r1. r2 } "an Array(a BenchmarkResult(2,199 iterations in 2 seconds 2
milliseconds. 1,098 per second) a BenchmarkResult(5,728 iterations in 2
seconds 3 milliseconds. 2,860 per second))"
