Sockets should accept integers/bytearrays as well as characters/strings

Description

This is probably easiest to do with a new class shape, which can also be used for FileStreams. The new shape would accept bytes *and* characters for #at:put:, and return characters always (for backwards compatibility).

Currently, I am working around it in Sport, but it's bad for performance.

Turns out it's not necessary for Sport, lowering priority.
