In that case, it would be an Array (and should be a return value).
Unfortunately, in gobject-introspection the method has a gpointer, which
gjs cannot represent.
If you need to read text, you should wrap the UnixInputStream in a
DataInputString and use g_data_input_stream_read_line(). If you need to
read a binary array, file a bug at glib and ask for a type override
