Thanks for updating the Gears documentation!

There appears to be general support for "byte ranged" FileData objects.  
FileData (from which File inherits) will contain asynchronous data 
accessor functions; this might be an additional method on it, with 
arguments of offset and length.  I'll define it asynchronously.  I'll 
update my draft and report back.

This I'm less sanguine about, since the immediately desired capability 
is to work with existing system files.
