That's actually quite easy to define, if you have a function which opens
a file both for reading and writing. I provided a few simple choices of
semantics on the emails following my openReadWrite patch which I sent to this
list several months ago, and never heard back about it again.
If you don't want this, just say you don't, but please don't make these
excuses that it would be hard or messy to do.
