A alternative way to do this is:

	| directory file |
	directory := FileDirectory default directoryNamed: 'foo'.
	file := directory readOnlyFileNamed: 'bar.txt'

The only thing is, I just realized that there is no #directoryNamed: in
the current image.  Hmmm, this seems to work:

	directoryNamed: directoryName
		"open the directory given by directoryName, with directoryName
interpreted relative to the receiver"
		^FileDirectory on: (self fullNameFor: directoryName)
