* :abs.Replaces a file (disk to disk, or RDR to disk) while preserving          
*      previous versions, if found.  Particularly useful for upgrading          
*      files nondestructively while others have R/O links to the disk.          
*      Previous versions are decremented by 'filetype' and can be               
*      reactivated by the 'REVERSE' option, should the new version prove        
*      troublesome.  Makes it very easy to 'upgrade' or 'back off'.
