what, like write the file out, then seek back and patch in. Hmmm. We'd 
need a placeholder that put the exact number of bytes in, or lots of 
000000000s to cover all possible failures, you'd need to calculate the 
relevant offset in the saved file for the encoding you are using, then 
open it in binary mode and patch in the new numbers, also encoded 
appropriately. No, we dont want that.

You could stream the stuff out in a stats-at-the-end format and then 
postconvert it with XSLT to a legacy layout.Much cleaner.
