Sure we need it. At Smallthought, we have a package of utility
methods that includes:
^ String streamContents:
self do: [:ea | s nextPutAll: ea asString] separatedBy: [s
Looking through my sends to it, the argument is always either ' ' or
', ', so #joinedWithSpaces and #joinedWithCommas would probably be
sensible methods to have too.
