AFAIK the sources and the changes file are both a series of chunks, so
#nextChunkPut: is the method you're looking for.

>> Randal is right. You can not just add something at the beginning of the sources or changes file. These are *NOT* text files but databases, the offsets are held in the image (each method knows the file position of its source code). The normal way to put a license in the beginning would be via #condenseSources - which we need to do anyway to purge all older versions of methods.
