I don't know exactly what you mean that I replaced, but it surely wasn't the
intention. I cannot remember changing anything to FileOpen.

My idea exactly, because this implementation worked already, we should be
able to get FileSystem to work quickly.
Maybe we should coordinate it a bit to be sure we aren't doing the same
BTW: Is it possible to create another patch for a file when the first one
hasn't been commited yet? Ideally, this last patch shouldn't include the
changes to the first file...

I'll convert RandomVBFile tonight...
