The `InputStream.read(byte[],int,int)` specification indicates

If len is zero, then no bytes are read and 0 is returned; otherwise, there is 
an attempt
to read at least one byte. If no byte is available because the stream is at end 
of file,
the value -1 is returned; otherwise, at least one byte is read and stored into 

so that zero should be returned if `len` is zero regardless of anything else. 
`SequenceInputStream` does not follow this so its specification should be 
modified to document the existing, longstanding behavior.

A CSR will be filed once there is consensus here.
