For "append", the reason is simple. The use case for appending is really
repeated appending (e.g. writing to a log file), so providing a
convenience for one-shot appending doesn't make sense.
For "exclusive", it's not used often enough to warrant such a shortcut.

I don't want these APIs to become kitchen sink APIs.
