FileAPI "splice" method

this is a minor point, but I'm finding the name of the "splice" method to be
odd. To me splice means to join, and "slice" would seem a more appropriate
name. The Array object has both splice and slice, and the former is used for
removing and inserting data and modifies the array in place, while the
latter pulls out a sub-part of the array into a new array.
