Yeah, really, it's confusing. If you want to edit a file, or descend
into a directory, it makes no sense to say you're "replacing" it.
You're "opening" it, no? It especially makes sense, since each of
these functions is already paired with a "close" routine.

I'm really looking forward to this rename. I think it's worth the
pain. :-)
