Subject: [boost] [filesystem] security questions

  In *nix systems it is recommended practice to operate with file
descriptors rather than file names.
  The sample commands sequence is:
  1) open file
  2) check file status (check symlink for instance)
  3) process write operation

  Unfortunately I cannot find a way to do the same using boost::filesystem

  Is it planned to support such style?

Best Regads,
