Randal Schwartz writes in his blog
about streams citing Derek Williams http://derekwilliams.us/?p=1411
He gives the following as an example of elegant syntax of Smalltalk
'myfile.txt' asFileName readStream contents
This does not work in Squeak nor in Pharo.
It produces a ReadStream on the contents of the _String_ 'myfile.txt'.
i.e. the ByteString with 10 elements.
