We already have something exactly like that:

Maybe it makes more sense to add new functionality to the buffer lib?
I.e., teach the buffer lib to read from / write to files, in a similar
fashion to the Java NIO that you've mentioned.  We can also add some
other ways to read/parse data, such as the ones Christian suggested.

Then we can remove BIO eventually, as it's not a nice API
("abomination") and sits at a weird level of abstraction.
