0006964: [clean-up] SequenceableCollection>>startsWith: duplicates beginsWith:

This selector is declared as a *services-base and sent by ServiceShortcuts.

It does the same as beginsWith:, far less efficiently:
1) uselessely creates a subcollection
2) iterates the whole index range when it could answer false at first mismatch

clean it up!

Ah, forgot to say, SequenceableCollection is the single implementor of startsWith:

I propose in nice.1.cs to move method to deprecated (with a halt: to encourage anyone encountering it to fix it).

I was not aware of the #deprecated: message.
It is far better than the halt: I initially proposed.

So here comes nice.2.cs

It's done.
