Hi Bruno,

Now that you've done it, that's fine.  Let's hope that if it's still in
use after a few more years, someone will have added ftruncate support.

BTW, since you seem to care about mingw, can you tell us which part
of lib/ftruncate.c is used on that system?  And does the replacement
function actually work?

If we're no closer to removing the module, then we should document those
things while we're at it, since some of that code is very dusty.
