Hello all.
As a note (since I think redmine is bouncing my updates to
ruby-core--see previous email about that),

Re: http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/1081
I have added an updated patch (the old one no longer merged cleanly,
plus had a minor bug). Feel free to reformat it or convert to C.

The syntax is the same as the previous patch, basically:

File::write(path, string, offset, opt={})
or
File::write(path, string, opt={})

Thanks for consideration.
