What do you think of the proposal to use sync gstdio.h for
small/local/pseudo-file-system I/O and async GIO for all other I/O?

I don't think this is a great alternative in many cases. The gstdio
stuff may work fine from C, but the GObjects etc of gio makes such use
much nicer from language bindings.

True. Wouldn’t the languages typically have their own native gstdio-like
functions for local file I/O though, which would tend to be integrated
