No problem with open and link, but I'm a bit reluctant to do this in
write. Setting the file time on each WriteFile looks like a pretty
time consuming operation, so I'm a bit in doubt if every write operation
should be slowed down by this, POSIX compatibility or not. Wouldn't
it help in most cases, if the close after write sets the ctime?
