I think that's a reasonable request, but the reason that
it isn't in there already is that the Posix library implements
just POSIX 1003.1a (1990), not also 1003.1b (1993),
which is when the (so-called) real-time/POSIX.4 extensions
(incl O_SYNC)  were introduced.

Rather than patching the Posix library to include stuff like
O_SYNC, I'd like to see a Haskell binding to the Single
UNIX (aka Unix98) instead - it subsumes the
POSIX.1 APIs (and you can get at the specs without having
to pay the extortionate rates that IEEE charges). Feel free
to contribute such a binding!
