okay, okay.. :)
it is really hard to choose. I'd prefer #asFile, #asDirectory ,
because its less ambiguous and better indicates one's intent.
But, as i read from your docs, if i not mistaken, behind these methods
you having an instance of same class. From this perspective, there's
enough a single selector to convert string into rio instance. It also
puts less fat in String protocol (if anyone cares).
