Hello all;

As promised on the lambda-libs-spec-experts mailing list I have prepared a changeset which renames the single arg substream() to skip() and remove the two arg substream() method (aka "slice").

The rationale behind these changes is:

 - skip() is easier for new users to locate than substream().
 - substream(long,long) has ambiguous semantics and duplicates skip().limit()
