This class represents the array of 8 bit wide characters.
Yoshiki Ohshima writes to the Squeak mailing list 7th Dec 2015:
ByteStrings are meant to be ISO-8859-1.
Unfortunately, Squeak does use ByteString to store UTF-8 . My intention was only transiently;
in hindsight, it would have been a better convention to use ByteArray
for this transient UTF-8 data.
