[Mono-dev] Should we replace MemoryStream?

I use GetBuffer() quite often and I tend to think of memory stream as a
more OO mapping to a vanilla byte[]. ChunkedStream is something else.

I do not challenge the potential benefits of a ChunkedStream
implementation. However, this more advanced implementation should not be
forced on to the default case unless guarantees can be made for
equivalent performance and behavior in ALL cases. If these guarantees
can not be made, it should be an opt-in improvement.
