Streams vs. Descriptors
Message ID:
For file I/O (in core.ops, not io.ops), do we want to use file descriptors or streams?
open uses fopen(), close uses fclose(), but read uses read(), and write uses write().  And all the comments 
say descriptors.

Any opinions one which way the code should be patched?
