But we are talking about logfiles (e.g.), so there is a line separator.
"head" and "tail" seem to deal with this happily.
Considering also we're talking about logfiles, and considering that the 
part that would be obliterated would be the oldest, I believe it would 
not hurt that much if the obliterated part at the top was just the same 
number of bytes (or characters) as the size of the last line added.
But maybe some kind of pre-allocated space, with a "current" pointer 
would work in a nicer way.
