Nope because it needs the correct beginning contents, not because it wasn't
a good thought.

Yes, but it should be able to figure this out as long as it's in the root 
directory on the FAT, since that's a fixed size and location to search

If so, that's nasty - a libretto I was messing with was perfectly happy
for me to just mess around with it as long as I put its precious file 
back in the FAT volume at the beginning before I was through.

(in ref to my previous note: no, I didn't check whether the libretto was
robust about where the FAT partition itself sat on the drive.  Sorry.)
