Ubuntu package:

> Probably the most general purpose tool in moreutils so far is
> sponge(1), which lets you do things like this:
>     % sed "s/root/toor/" /etc/passwd | grep -v joey | sponge /etc/passwd
> There are lots more listed below, and I'm always interested to add
> more to the collection, as long as they're suitably general-purpose,
> and don't duplicate other well-known tools.
