The includes necessary for safe_open are those necessary for open, plus

I absolutely hate that. A header file should be compilable on its
own. The times when #include<foo.h> would slow down the compiler are
long gone and all include files are protected with #ifndef NAME so
duplicate includes are harmless.
On the other hand finding out what include files to include and in what
order is a real pain if you have multiple files. Even if you have read
the manual you will have to reread it every time you start a new project
again and again to get that right.
