  Description     : Simple functions for performing safe atomic file updates

Safewrite is a library for simple, almost drop-in replacement to the usual
open and close calls. Using safewrite, however, guarantees that the files be
updated in an atomic way - anyone trying to read the file is guaranteed to get
a complete version, either the old or the new, but never a partially updated
