OK, for the limited gs-to-gs case, same endianness...

Since in GemStone #replaceFrom:to:with: expects to be copying from a 
collection, not (for instance) a LargeInteger, the most generic way to 
copy the bytes of a byte object is probably to write a loop that uses 
#_basicSize and #_basicAt: to access the bytes.
