Are you sure you're comparing (roughly) equal things?

I would compare:

FileStream stdin

(very roughly) to:

ZnCharacterReadStream on:
    (ZnBufferedReadStream on:
        Stdio stdin).

Actually it is still not a fair comparison because MultiByteFileStream
attempts to be writable as well.  If you could notionally do:

FileStream stdin

you could compare FileStream and Stdio :-)

One important similarity:  At the bottom they both use the same set of
primitives to communicate with the OS stdio streams (FilePlugin).
