For c stdio files, intermixed reads and writes require a file positioning operation. This is a nuisance and source of program bugs. I do not see any such limitation documented for our io module. So for both reasons, it will be nice to not have the limitation in the code.

If I understand, the essence of the patch is to do the file positioning automatically internally when needed.
