[Ian G. Macky <Phaedrus>: overwriting existing files.]

@LISP seems to have the same problem as the one fixed here; it refuses
to overwrite existing files.  It should probably be fixed.

Subject: overwriting existing files.

It turns out that the FILE server was setting GJ%NEW\GJ%FOU for output
files, which was not really the best thing.  If you make it just GJ%FOU,
then files that have an explicit version number get overwritten, while
versionless ones get the next higher number...  this seems like the right
behavior, so I made the change in FILE.449 here on OZ.
