Since I won't be able to skim over the source code until possibly end
of next week, here are just my thoughts:

Preferably, it would create a _new_ clawsrc.tmp file and write
everything to that file, and when done, it would create a backup of
the existing clawrc and then rename(3) clawsrc.tmp to clawsrc.
If Claws Mail gets interrupted/killed prior to the final renaming
step, the old clawsrc file would still be present.
