`make-blob' needs a fill argument. (Filling it with random memory is a
potential security vulnerability in many contexts.)
Someone mentioned (Peter?) that partial-bloc and partial-blob-copy!
could be rolled into blob-copy and blob-copy!, and I agree very much. I
like the language about copy direction; that was very carefully done.
There is no read syntax for blobs; I think this is an error. What about
good ol' #vu8().
What would you call a sub-blob which shares state with another blob?
"subblob" is very blub, but the analogy to strings is quite strong, and
perhaps indeed blob-copy should be subblob. But oh, the voiced labial
