It's really an oddity for an editor to keep an open handle on a file. All
(other) editors that I know of do open-read-close or open-write-close. In
particular, this allows you to "rename away" the file while it is being
edited, and the editor's save will create a new file (with the right name).

Under the assumption that other processes might be mucking with the
filesystem at the same time, it's inherently erroneous to keep an open
handle and assume that it will continue to refer to the same file name.
