Thinking about it a little longer, I don't really see why it should be a
stream (since it has to already be completely read into memory anyway),
nor why it should have to be two bindings.  So unless there are any
objections I'll probably change the interface to a single binding that
provides some kind of IAFile object, with two methods - #fileName and
#contents - both returning strings.  Oh, and I guess #contentType as well,
