That makes sense, if appending is just adding on to the end of the file
on the disk, and not bothering to load the file up into memory.

I haven't done any testing with newer versions of Rev but I
investigated this a couple years ago when adding a logging function
to my web cgi. Using the open for append/write/close was determined
to be somewhat more efficient than the url method (and confirmed by
Scott Raney at that time).
