It's a problem common to all the insert-file-content handlers, I think?
Now that I understand what the problem is (i.e., "don't replace the text
at the start of the buffer with identical text"), I think fixing this in
the epa case should hopefully be easy enough, and perhaps something more
general can be extracted from that solution.  Which I have not written
yet, so we'll see.  :-)
