Comment(by Denis-de-Bernardy):

 I don't like the flock() idea. flock() isn't always available and is
 tricky to use on some servers, as was revealed by plugins such as wp-cache
 and its derivatives.

 the "standard" workaround is to write to a temporary file, and then to
 rename the temporary file, overwriting the target file as needed.
