    The above is just horrible.

    It doesn't fix any problems, it is only an ugly work-around for a
    situation that never happens in real life. An application that only
    re-reads the data that it just wrote itself is a _stupid_ application, and
    I'm absolutely not interested in having a new interface that is useless
    for everything _but_ such a stupid application.
