I think we’ve agreed that we are not going to attempt to re-introduce the problematic interruptible I/O mechanism. These new methods are targeted at specific use-cases and common patterns found in code. I’d like to do a final review of the spec before finalising it.

Let’s park this momentarily, while I sketch up the readAllBytes variant, so we can ensure that the typical use cases have been addressed. Doing so may feedback into the spec of this method. I’ll push this latest draft into the sandbox so it is not lost.
>> Yes, a separate use-case but once that I would expect to be common.
