"Full" was a poor choice of word. Only the ones we'd reasonably expect from
CreateFile, obviously (the other X-thousand someone else can do if they feel
up to it :-)

Not sure if EINVAL can ever actually be returned by open(), but I'm happy
either way [the way I see it, both "Error: Invalid argument" or "Error: The
operation completed successfully" both point to a missing case]
