/// MemoryBuffer - This interface provides simple read-only access to a block
/// of memory, and provides simple methods for reading files and standard input
/// into a memory buffer.  In addition to basic access to the characters in the
/// file, this interface guarantees you can read one character past the end of
/// the file, and that this character will read as '\0'.
///
/// The '\0' guarantee is needed to support an optimization -- it's intended to
/// be more efficient for clients which are reading all the data to stop
/// reading when they encounter a '\0' than to continually check the file
/// position to see if it has reached the end of the file.
