Assets.Open() returns an InputStreamInvoker, for which the following kinds of behaviors will throw an exception:
isi.Position += 100;
While the underlying Java.io.InputStream does not support random access, it does allow moving the read head forward via the skip() function.
I propose that the implementation be adjusted to allow the position to be moved in one direction, in some fashion.
That sounded like a good idea, but it turned out to be impossible to implement that because it is impossible to get current Position which is necessary to implement Seek() to calculate return value. Thanks for the suggestion.
