Unix/Posix-specific functions for ByteStrings.

Provides ByteString file-descriptor based I/O API, designed loosely after the String file-descriptor based I/O API in System.Posix.IO. The functions here wrap standard C implementations of the functions specified by the ISO/IEC 9945-1:1990 (``POSIX.1'') and X/Open Portability Guide Issue 4, Version 2 (``XPG4.2'') specifications.

Note that this package doesn't require the unix package as a dependency. But you'll need it in order to get your hands on an Fd, so we're not offering a complete replacement.
