I can't help but think this might be confusing to the user, if the
file unexpectedly disappears after it is created or updated. If might
also confuse some programs that expect the file to exist immediately
after it is created.

Maybe it would be better to list the file in the directory listing
still, but prevent it from being opened for reading? Write-only opens
should be OK I think.
