The implementation on this doesn't seem overly complex. My main concerns
are what we're asking from the filesystem in terms of atomicity, and

One of the failure modes is that on Windows a file cannot be deleted
while it is open in any process. It can happen that a compacting updater
wants to remove a reftable file that is still open in a reader.
