I'd like to point out, that if you create a file, open it, then delete
it, you can then still use it to store temporary data - this is indeed
a common use case.  However the amount of data storage may very well
exceed what you would be willing to store in ram, and thus you would
want to be able to write this data out to disk, even though the file
itself doesn't exist any more...  Some sort of swap-like behaviour???
