Oh, may be i should have quoted only the second phrase, which was the
one i wanted to point out, cause it does not mention anything about seek

Btw, mkestner already provided a solution for the problem that was
fixing ReadLine not to use Peek. Thanks.

Btw2: yesterday i proved that Peek does not call CanSeek. So our current
Peek implementation won't let me peek a char if the underlying stream is
a NetworkStream, while MS impl. let me do it.

We don't need to check for seek capabilities cause we don't need them.
We only need to read 1 more char and keep it buffered for the next Read.
Does that require any seek?
