Although the data blocks are being written once, the blocks with
inodes (and maybe directories) are being rewritten.
That doesn't invalidate the approach, however: the same arguments
about CF media being very cheap apply here when it wears out, and
also some cards have internal wear-levelling to remap interface
block numbers to internal addresses dynamically.
