[squeak-dev] Rewriting 'ReadStream on: smth'

I'm interested in enhancing the code of Pharo (and maybe Squeak if the
community is interested).
Currently, I'm thinking about replacing 'ReadStream on: expr' by 'expr

I can see the following advantages of this change:

- no more direct reference on ReadStream where it is not necessary
- allows different implementation of #readStream depending on the receiver class
- clarify the code

Can you detect any problem with this approach?

The RefactoringBrowser allows this change to be done simply in all the
method of the image.
