Along the same lines, if subclasses would typically benefit from 
overriding both skip() and skipNBytes(), how about we call out 
skipNBytes() in the skip() docs?  Either add a @see, or maybe append:

"Subclasses are encouraged to provide a more efficient implementation of 
this method" + " (as well as {@linkplain #skipNBytes()} )".

And do the same for skipNBytes().
