  Still that can be considered a regression, that behaviour is the
same since the introduction of the API years ago, we can't change it now
just because we think it's cool.
  Document the fact that in general once the restore suceeded the
file should be removed since the data are unlikely to be reusable
without loss of integrity, but you can't change the behaviour.
