Assuming I understand 'tread safe' in same way that you mean it, that  
isn't strictly correct. The problem is that the squeak model use  
separate positioning and read/writing calls. Thus is is quite  
possible (been there....) to have two processes referring to the same  
file and get
procA -> position: a
procB -> position: b
procA -> read from position (which I thought was a!)
