Hi Jose

I thought about this problem. In short, two new things came out of it:
1) As Bruno hinted, I believe as strongly as possible that I need to abandon fopen and move to open. The limited fopen flags do not provide the variety that we are looking for. You can see that in the spreadsheet that I attach. 2) I have considered some alternative sets of flags too, but came back to what we currently have. The only exception is that I have strong doubts about supporting IOS_F_TRUNCATE flag. As far as I can see it only makes sense for files and I do not know what to make of it in other interfaces. It is not a very useful poke-y functionality, it just clears a file. Can we simply drop it? If not, I intend to reject it on other interfaces. Let me know what you think about this.

I will start the implementation early afternoon.
