I consider that lws is made to work on very resource-constrained platforms.

All of the bloat can be sheared off with CMake options.

So having the C library use extra memory by arranging buffering for 
every file IO isn't desirable; we don't use the other f... APIs that 
exploit it and don't need the bloat.

As I say I'm not against doing it just I don't see why every platform 
must change how they do file IO because of the POS that is WinCE.  So if 
we can do it in a way that is consonant with what is already there, 
it'll be good.
