Bug description

The O_APPEND flag is currently ignored by the Win32 implementation of Unix.openfile. The MSDN page for CreateFile suggests a cheap way to implement the O_APPEND behavior. Consider updating otherlibs/win32unix/open.c accordingly.

I'm "un-assigning" this PR from myself as I've been sleeping on it for too long. Anyone who cares enough about this tiny feature is welcome to handle it: it looks pretty easy.

13 years later it is safe to say that nobody cares about this little feature. So, as the original reporter, I'm closing it.
