I was reading some Linux kernel stuff on the "text file busy"

I've been bitten by it time and time again...thinking about it, it
seems to be easy to resolve...

If you do a -b option (backup), this shouldn't occur
(i.e. you're making a new file).

How about a flag so when a errno of ETXTBSY, the file gets
unlinks before  created?

This is probably easier to modify makefiles then add a rm
line in front, which is often unneeded...
