  Er... how?  It's a text file on the disk.  There's no way of saying
"re-set the start of the file to be 10K ahead of where it is now".

  File *truncation* is supported in POSIX.  But truncating from the
start of the file isn't in POSIX.

  Hmmm... maybe over-writing it with spaces would work... or something
else might go wrong.

  But really, if it's going to be tweaked, it should probably be
redesigned from the ground up.
