 1. I don't remember why I originally set the share mode to 0; I think it
 may have been that more permissive settings caused tests to fail on some
 platforms. I have now set the mode to FILE_SHARE_READ | FILE_SHARE_WRITE,
 following the microsoft implementation of fopen (see, e.g., "Microsoft
 Visual Studio 8/VC/crt/src/fopen.c"), and the relevant tests pass on all
 my compilers, so I am committing the change ([42357])

 2. The third parameter to file_descriptor::open is for internal use only.
 file_descriptors always open files in read-write mode; to open a file in
 read-only mode, use file_descriptor_source. (I'm not sure this was a good
 design choice, but changing it now will break existing code.)
