Bug description

Buffer should provide a blit operation, similar to String.blit, that allows the buffer's internal contents to be copied to another string without requiring an intermediate string to be allocated (as is done by Buffer.sub and Buffer.contents). Doing this can reduce GC churn, and lead to better performing applications.
