This module makes it possible to ensure that data is not corrupted
between files whose version numbers are not important but must be
synchronized. It protects these files from crashes. It does, however,
require that critical files do not disappear between executions.
It can only account for cases where the computer does not do what it
is told, not cases where it does what it is not told.
