I'm wondering if the following open statement should really fail. I have no
strong opinion, but it would be convenient if it 'just' worked, like you can
open an non-existing file and 'append'.

I guess it is related to the fact that /dev/null can't be seeked.

> cat test.f90
 IF (istat.NE.0) STOP 1
