Tomek, nice to hear from you, but please don't waste your time.
I guess the best option is to simply tell users on Windows to
close all applications *EVERY* time a .ARCH package is updated (ie
something in bin/$arch/*). Then there is still the chance that
they are running a latex run at the same time that has some
.sty file open for reading, but well, shoot yourself if you want.


Best wishes

CRAIL (n. mineral)
Crail is a common kind of rock or gravel found widely across the
British Isles. Each individual stone (due to an as yet undiscovered
gravitational property) is charged with 'negative buoyancy'. This
means that no matter how much crail you remove from the garden, more
of it will rise to the surface. Crail is much employed by the Royal
Navy for making the paperweights and ashtrays used inside submarines.
