Hello all,

I've written variants of the System.Posix.IO API for strict and lazy 
ByteStrings which are currently lingering in their own unpublished 
package[1]. It's silly to have a separate package for just four 
functions, so I'd like to see it combined into the unix package. I don't 
have access to create a new ticket with the patch, but it's available at 

Discussion time: 2 weeks.
