A few very minor library issues

I'm fine with the find* methods as they are. It wasn't a problem finding
them and using them in the examples I wrote. The common prefix is a help
for grouping these common methods, and these both return an Option thing,
so the common prefix is also a helpful reminder there.

Just so you know, after we have discussed names several times over several
months and I have already coded the choices into examples, I tend to feel
pretty good about the names and am reluctant to want to change them:-)

I like substream, too.

I'm OK with computeIfAbsent. After years of discussion, it is what it is.
