[Haskell-cafe] File I/O question

Hi Cafe.

There's good news and there's bad news.

The bad news is... I'm back. [Did I miss anything good?]

The good news is... I have an actual question to ask as well.

When I write to a file using System.IO, the file is locked for exclusive 
access. I gather this is as specified in the Haskell Report. Which is 
nice, but... I'd actually prefer the file to *not* be locked. Anybody 
know how to do that?
