Great news.

Tom, can you hold off on "unlink handling" part of the implementation, at
least for a few days? I'm testing a patch right now to work around this very
issue (involves, under win32, replacing _open() with CreateFile, which
accepts parameters to allow deletion of the held file. Initial testing looks
good, but it'll need community review).
