+1 for a nice file IO library. I think this is one of the things where the "lets take our time and do it properly" has been going on for far too long: years now. I'm pretty sure there's no shortage of demand for any reasonable implementation, given the compiler has its own mini-IO library, akka/spray have their own, and basically everyone writes the same few utility methods before they start doing anything with files. Even without fancy things like nio, non-blocking-ness, continuations, iteratees/enumeratees, it would be a huge convenience.
If its make a wish time, I would rather like to see an ARM implementation thats at least equal to javas try-with-resources in the standard-library.
Its more basic, general and probably less code (loan is about 15 lines, maybe one would like to add more sugar or rubustness) than an io-library. The io-library would have to use an some ARM I guess, so why not start with ARM?

Agree! Would make sense to look further into it as soon as Scala's baseline is >= Java 7 (no working filesystem API before that).
