On looking closer, all drivers do this. Erase before write. I don't

I would like that behavior only when explicitly saying both erase and
write. Otherwise, the layout stuff will be erasing and rewriting data
that is not actually part of the selected region in the layout.

Hm? :)

I have been contemplating adding -T to run a full test cycle on a

to actually do anything?
